Yes, and specifically enabling the AJP health check (hcmethod=CPING) instead of the usual HTTP/TCP health checks (hcmethod=GET and hcmethod=TCP rispectively)

Building from upstream svn (both httpd and apr) was just a mean to show apache2 maintainers that the issue can be reproduced with the latest bits; the issue is still present with apr installed from binary packages.
