This sounds a bit strange - having given a Connection:close, mod_proxy
then closes the connection without waiting around, so the connection is
definitely not alive at the end of the request. Is weblogic then not
responding to the closed connection properly?

I don't see how this can be worked around very elegantly apart from
contacting the weblogic people and trying to report it as a bug.

If you change the HTTP/1.1 string in ap_proxy_http_handler() to HTTP/1.0
in the request and response this will do the trick, but then it will do
it for all servers.
