When downloading large files via apache on SSL on a slow connection, the files will abort, and the resulting downloaded file is incomplete.

When a slow connection is used, such as a 2 Megabit, the files are usually in the 50 Mb to 60 Mb range in size. When the connection is on a 10 Megabit switch, the files can be consistently larger (in the 600 Mb range).
