    Use ap_set_content_type() to set "Content-Type" header
    Formerly we were setting the response header "Content-Type" in
    r->headers_out directly via the apr_table_setn() call. Although using
    apr_table_setn() is appropriate for many HTTP headers Apache actively
    manages a small set of headers in
    http_filters.c:ap_http_header_filter(). These managed headers are
    derived from values maintained in the request_rec. "Content-Type" is
    one of the managed headers.
    Because we didn't set r->content_type field via the
    ap_set_content_type() call and instead directly updated the
    r->headers_out table our value for "Content-Type" was overwriten when
    the ap_http_header_filter() was run just prior to emitting the
    response with the result the "Content-Type" header returned to the
    client was incorrect.
