The problem is occurring because the server times out the connection so the
problem is almost always a configuration setting somewhere.  It may however
not be a configuration in the server itself, the firewall can be configured
to time out connections as well etc.  My first step in debugging any problem
with HttpClient is to telnet into port 80 of the server myself so I can see
exactly what's going on and get a lot more control.  Enabling the http wire
logs are also good but I find the output of telnet is easier to follow and
lets me change around what's sent a bit more easily.

Basically though, it will happen on both servers if you leave it long enough
- it's only a matter of time... (queue spooky music).

Not much more detail I can shed on the situation I'm afraid.
