I wish I understood exactly why this was happening... it seems almost
indicative of some problem in Apache or APR.  The module shouldn't have to
buffer all this stuff... it should be able to do a read from the input
filter chain, process it, and send some output down the output filter
chain, and that ought to be it.  Buffering the whole thing either in RAM
or on disk in a production environment would open a huge DoS hole.
