[Mono-aspnet-list] Apache + mod-mono serving httpd/unix-directory every so often

I'm having a problem of a blank file of type httpd/unix-directory being
served every so often.
I have searched google and read somewhere that this happens when Apache
can't find a virtual host to serve the request. What troubles me is why
does this happen only once in a while with the same configuration.

I'm getting desperate as my knowledge of apache is very minimal, and my
website is already online.
I'm using Mono 2.10.5, mod_mono 2.10 with .NET 4, and apache 2.2.21-r1

My apache configuration file (httpd.conf) is a standard Gentoo httpd.conf
that comes with apache, with these lines added:

*# My conf!
KeepAlive Off
NameVirtualHost *:80
ServerName elomeno.com*

httpd.conf has a directive to include all files named
/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf, and everything under
/etc/apache2/modules.d/*.conf, the latter being the one responsible for
loading the mod_mono module.

Then, there are two files I created, /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/elomeno.include
and /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/elomeno.conf

This is *elomeno.conf*:
*Listen 80

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName elomeno.com
        Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/elomeno.include

And this is *elomeno.include*:
  *RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.elomeno\.com(\.br)? [NC,OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =elomeno.com.br [NC]
  RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://elomeno.com/$1 [R,L]

  ServerAdmin webmaster at elomeno.com
  DocumentRoot /home/dezege/Website
  ErrorLog /home/dezege/apache-errors.log
  TransferLog /home/dezege/apache-transfer.log
  MonoServerPath elomeno.com "/usr/bin/mod-mono-server4"

  # MonoDebug elomeno.com true

  MonoApplications elomeno.com "/:/home/dezege/Website"
  <Location />
    Allow from all
    Order allow,deny
    MonoSetServerAlias elomeno.com
    SetHandler mono
  <Location /Content/>
    SetHandler default-handler
  <Location /Scripts/>
    SetHandler default-handler
  <Location /mono>
    SetHandler mono-ctrl
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from

This is a rather standard MVC3 Web App. What could be happening?
Thanks in advance,
