I am afraid I can't help you that much with this problem. The only
thing I can think of is 
a) run the server in trace mode to get details on the situation you
encounter
b) try turning the keep-alive property of the server to false (if you
do this through the form-base editor, don't firget to restart the
server).

b) might be usefull to detect a bug in the browser with regard to
keep-alive (a frequent thing). That's all I can think of, let me know
if you make any progress...

Anselm.
