That's OK for testing. In production you should set this to 10000.
See the yellow box at:

If, eventually, we come to agree that there is a bug, then filing an issue
is a good idea, of course. But I still believe this can be explained by a
server-side configuration problem, so I don't think filing a bug is
necessary at this stage.

Let's work some more on making sure keep-alives are configured correctly:

Please ensure the KeepAlive directive is set to 'On'.
  KeepAlive On

And that the KeepAliveTimeout is set to at least 300 seconds:
  KeepAliveTimeout 300

Does this help?
If it does not, please share more details about your server-side
authentication configuration in httpd.conf and related files.
