This looks very much like Apache httpd server bug #51878.

The requests Beth found were all a byte-range from 0 (ie the start) 
which apache does correctly but sends a 200 (according to the letter, 
but not the spirit of the http standard) rather than a 206 (correct in 
both letter and spirit).

This was fixed in apache 2.2.22 September-last.
