Not necessarily. Your outer proxy that doesn't crash might have more RAM 
in the machine, or the inner proxy has already crashed, not allowing the 
outer proxy the opportunity to have a request large enough to crash it.

Have you tested the outer proxy with a large file on it's own, ie a file 
greater in size than the box's RAM+swap?

Pull the latest HEAD from cvs and give it a try to see if it is fixed.
