KeepAliveTimeout 15
is *very* long nowadays.  It means that, after a browser has sent its 
last request (and is maybe never going to make another request), the 
Apache server's child/thread which was handling that connection, will 
wait for up to 15 seconds, doing nothing, before it decides that the 
browser is never going to ask for something else, and then close its 
side of the connection and, possibly, signal that it is now available to 
handle another request.

Try setting to 3 for instance.
