it works, but not stable as my experiences have shown. I got now running with apache-1.3.27 since some
time and that working as expected, it's cygwin-1.3.10-2 underneith.

There is something wrong in the cygwin-1.3.12 (and up) versions
concerning Apache.

Can you snapshot the html output and mail it to me.

It runns "old" 1.3.10-2. Which is currently the only one working
reliable and stable for me. 

I'd like to hear from the Cygwin core guys what connection or socket
internal things have changed since then.

yep, it's not inside Apache, I suppose the problem is resulting from
some change in Cygwin itself since 1.3.10-2. I had any apache version
running successfully on cygwin-1.3.10-2.

yes, unfortunatly.

If you are interested in getting this fixed ASAP, please enfore the
cygwin developers to have a deeper look into this. My time is
currently very limited.
