Some observations:

1. I tried to reproduce it with a backend that as well send 1 byte chunks:
   Everything works fin.
2. Excerpt from first test results:


This an invalid chunked encoding (\r is already the one byte that was announced for this
chunk. e\r\n would need to have 1\r\n in front).
This is very strange as the ap_http_filter dechunks the results from backend and
ap_http_chunk_filter creates a new chunked encoding.

3. Both seem to see stray \r characters which I suppose to be not part of the content.

As said for this reason the network sniffs would be really interesting.
