I've never personally seen that.

Some debugging tips:

1. How consistent is this? Is it only for certain URLs or certain
clients? Can you give us a URL that shows the problem?

2. Is this for the internal error messages or are you using an
ErrorDocument 404 directive?

3. What kind of filesystem are you serving off? Is it possible that
this filesystem takes a long time to return not-found errors?

I don't understand the question. A 404 is returned just like any other response.
