I recommend checking your hardware.  I had a similar problem with huge
files, although unrelated to Apache.  Files bigger than ~2GB would
*seem* to be corrupted.  I suspect its the hard disk drive, because
lowering the ATA bus speed (atacontrol mode ad0 UDMA33) made this
problem go away (the drive is a SAMSUNG SP1614N TM100-24).  This
problem occurred with different motherboard chipsets and different
versions of FreeBSD (5-stable, 6-PRERELEASE), so I really think it is
the hard disk drive.
