'echo' on it's own should print a new line.  If you want two, why not 
just use two echo lines?

Also, you are piping everything else to the apache_request_log except 
for the last echo line.  Is the problem simply that you forgot to pipe 
that to the log file?

echo -e "\n" >> /tmp/apache_request_log
