7.0.16. When performing a dispatch() from within an onTimeout handler, Tomcat does not call
the onComplete handler after the request has been dispatched.

and I cannot see any exception to this rule in the context of timeouts. See also the state
diagram on page 19: onComplete must always be called.

Yep, that is a bug. I have updated the unit tests locally to cover this
and am working on a fix now.

Thanks for the report, it has highlighted a number of interesting edge
cases that weren't being covered. These will also be covered in the
updated unit tests and any fixes required will also be made.
