Should be fixed by r1495419 [1]:
[[[[
Rework server chunked transfer encoding support detection in ra_serf.
Use HTTP/1.1 chunked transfer encoding for first OPTIONS request and
then fallback to HTTP/1.0 requests if HTTP 411 status code or
HTTP/1.0 response received.
]]]

I've tested my fix with all publicly available servers like
unfuddle.com and xp-dev.com
