I can confirm that this bug still exists in 2.2.11.  We proxy requests to Jetty
and under certain conditions, Jetty reduces the socket timeout for incoming
connections to 2 seconds.  This means if a client (such as Apache) connects and
does not send it any data within 2 seconds, it will close the socket.

By splitting an HTTP request into multiple packets (first packet contains HTTP
headers and part of the POST body, second packet contains the rest of POST
body), and making sure there is more than 2 seconds delay between the two
packets, Apache/mod_prozy will always return a 502 response (and the request is
never sent to Jetty).
