Apache 1.3.14 breaks byterange functionality (hinders serving of PDFs)

Hello. There is a problem in Apache 1.3.14 where byteranges are broken.
This problem was fixed in later versions of Apache, and is documented at:
This has the most effect on the serving of PDF files. One workaround is
adding the following line to httpd.conf:
SetEnvIf Request_URI \.pdf nokeepalive
However, updating to 1.3.19 will also fix it. I have had to recompile
several web servers to work around this problem, so I thought I'd report
it. :-) Thanks.
Thanks. Apache 1.3.19 shipped with 7.1.
