Why are you assuming this is a bug?  It looks like in the first request, we are unable
to read the data for some reason, but the second request, when the content-length
filter tries to read the CGI data, it is able to.

The C-L filter tries to determine how much data is there, if it can't read everything,
then it just passes to the next filter, and we use either chunking, or we close the
connection after the request.
