OK, it would be interesting, whether the reverse proxy itself sees a bad 
request, or the origin (backend) server.

One possibility for such a bad request could be having a content-length 
header plus transfer encoding chunked. Remember we always have to 
distinguish whether we are talking about the original request received 
by the proxy, or the request send from the proxy to the origin server.
