But seriously, you could prove it is or isn't the config file one way 
or the other by copying the one from the other server.  I'm not much 
of an expert on much of anything, but I question the likelihood of 
there being a directive you could stick in the apache config that 
would make it transfer part of a certain type of file and then stop.

One other thing just occurred to me, I once had a workstation that 
wouldn't download any images off the web.  I pulled my hair out over 
it for awhile, reinstalled Windows on the damn thing, and then 
finally fixed it by replacing the NIC.  I'm no electrical engineer, 
so I don't know what could possibly go wrong with a NIC that would 
make the machine unable to download certain types of files.....but it 
apparently can happen.
