Stab in the dark without logs, but I reckon it might be the sort of
automatic URL rewriting in Apache that is doing this. It will often
change the received hostname to the ServerName directive, esp. if there
are no virtual hosts in the config and there are several hostnames that
point to the box.

This usually ends up just redirecting to login and then all is OK, but
maybe not?
