httpd (conditionally) handles the chunking... the app generator's
chunking is never used.  What *module* is installed in httpd?  I'm
not familiar with the above.

Only the entry point to httpd, e.g. mod_proxy, mod_wl, mod_ws, mod_jk
mod_cgi or whatnot should ever dechunk.  The response body must pass
through httpd without any protocol (chunking) or headers.
