I made some progress with this over the weekend. I'm still not sure
where the problem is but I have a clearer idea of what is happening.

I've modified the test to send a sequence of "0123456789ABCDEF0123..."
rather than "XXX..." so it is easier to spot when / if the data is

I've also switched the client to a simple socket based client so I can
examine the bytes directly.

What this shows is that towards the end of the 5MB, the client receives
a chunk that is long than it should be and the chunk shows corruption in
that the expected sequence is broken.

The total bytes the server thinks it sent (including headers, chunking
overhead etc.) does not agree with the total bytes received by the client.

My next step is to look more closely at the server code (the issue is
sensitive to timing so it can be tricky to add debug code and still see
the issue) to figure out if I am misusing the API or if there might be
an APR/native bug at the root of this.
