okay, so with the Timeout directive added I can reproduce this issue.

What I see is that the server closes the connection in the middle of
sending a response to the client. It doesn't even finalize the
response first.
So ra_serf is reading the data from the response bucket, but gets an
APR_EOF when it needs more data than specified in the Content-Length
header of the response.

What is the expected behavior here, let serf close down the connection
and try the request again on a new connection?
