Standalone install does not work with Apache + mod_proxy_ajp + SSL

      2.6.18-164.10.1.el5xen (64 bit)
      java version "1.6.0_16"

      I've configured hudson to only use the ajp connector using a command line similar to

      /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0/bin/java -Dcom.sun.akuma.Daemon=daemonized -Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx64m -DHUDSON_HOME=/space/hudson -jar /usr/lib/hudson/hudson.war --logfile=/var/log/hudson/hudson.log --daemon --prefix=hudson --httpPort=-1 --ajp13Port=8109 --debug=5 --handlerCountMax=10 --handlerCountMaxIdle=0

      I'm using the following apache configuration file

          ProxyRequests Off
          ProxyPreserveHost On
          <Proxy *>
              Order deny,allow
              Allow from all
          ProxyPass /hudson ajp://localhost:8109/hudson retry=1
          ProxyPassReverse /hudson ajp://localhost:8109/hudson

      When accessing https://host/hudson , I get a 503 error page from Apache. The apache logs contain:

      [Wed Feb 24 23:58:04 2010] [error] ajp_read_header: ajp_ilink_receive failed
      [Wed Feb 24 23:58:04 2010] [error] (120006)APR does not understand this error code: proxy: read response failed from (null) (localhost)

      while the winstone logs contain:

      [Winstone 2010/02/24 23:58:04] - Error within request handler thread
      java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 1065

      It's worth mentioning that this was working with Tomcat 6.0.20 , but stopped working when I tried to move over to the standalone install.

      I've tried various combinations with or without prefix, and the only one which seems to work is ajp without any prefix.
