I've taken a look briefly at this patch, and I can see one possible
problem. All the patch does is send an HTTP/1.0 instead of an HTTP/1.1 -
but the rest of the proxy still behaves like an HTTP/1.1 proxy. This
might cause problems with some requests.

This patch is a workaround to BEA Weblogic (if memory serves) - was the
problem specifically with HTTP/1.1 requests, or with keepalive requests?
(I don't remember, it's late). If it's keepalives that are causing the
problem, I'll investigate an option to switch them off separately from
frontend keepalives.
