I have similar problem with Lighttpd 1.4.21 used to play mp3 files in 
embedded flash player. mp3 load only first 2 - 3 seconds and play it in 
loop. Even if I try to download the mp3, files are broken the same way. 
File has good size, but contains just first 2 - 3 seconds and then loop. 
Downgrade back to 1.4.20 fixes problem immediately without any 
configuration changes. So I think 1.4.21 has broken buffer or something 
like that.
