Actually we know we haven't covered all possibilities. Had someone a while
back that had mod_security setup in such a way that it was rejecting some
request methods (think it was POST) without Content-Length (thus breaking
chunked requests). The behavior didn't fail for the OPTION requests so our
probe to try and work around transparent proxies failed.

But I'm not sure what this thread would really have to do with chunked
requests, since the problem seems to be pipelining which as far as I know we
don't have any workarounds for.

We can rule out the chunked requests by disabling it by adding this to the
command line --config-option servers:global:http-chunked-requests=no and seeing
if it changes anything. But I really doubt it based on what I've seen on this
thread.

More details on what Branko is talking about and the config option I mentioned
