That is straightforward, your *client*, not httpd, has been sending bad
requests. Those might have CR or LF line endings, but failed to send
both CR+LF as required by the spec. It might be sending a badly
formatted request line, or invalid request header lines. LogLevel debug
here would be your friend, or you can use wireshark to look at a request.

'HttpProtocolOptions unsafe' config option can allow some of this very
unwise traffic to pass, but fixing the client is the correct solution.
