I don't want to overdo this thread (apologies if it is already), last
comment yet...

The issue would still be there for the remaining data since nothing
guarantees the partial (initial) sending has reached the backend, which
might still have closed the connection in the meantime ("error reading
status line from remote server" is the proof, the failure occurs on the
recv(), not the send()).

Maybe one (other than me) facing the race condition can give my patch a
chance (no more "error reading status line..." here with TTL < KA-timeout,
pretetch, and slow clients).

No noticeable slow-down either, although statements like this are worthless
without measure...
I plan to do that soon (and keep you informed, for those who still care :)
