Serf is resending requests that were waiting on the pipeline to be
handled by the server, but when a read error is received it will not
resend the request.
Maybe ra_serf is doing that in some situations, but I don't think so either.

The issue here is that serf trunk was ignoring a read error on the
connection with an outstanding request, as a side effect if r1695.
That has been fixed in r1696.
