I'd guess somehow the server started treating subsequent requests as more
incoming data from the previous one, rather than a new request. I know
Squid has limits on the size of uploads; I wonder if mod_proxy was somehow
mangling requests over some upper limit?

I'm CCing the list, in the hope someone be able to shed more light on the
problem. A workaround is nice, but solving the problem is better :)
