That suggests the request headers exceeded a hard limit in the server (and
very possibly that it was a malformed request).  The size of the request is
irrelevant UNLESS something is broken, like the headers never being
terminated.   Setting your loglevel to debug or sniffing the request on the 
wire might tell you more, if perhaps you can identify where it's coming from 
to set up a test case.
