Hi Maxim, Hi Piotr

nginx -V:

nginx version: nginx/0.8.54
built by Sun C 5.10 SunOS_sparc Patch 141861-06 2010/07/28
TLS SNI support disabled

Note that the bug also appeared with optimization level O3.

The error log is full of the following error (only during the problematic hour):

2011/03/04 08:40:28 [error] 20062#0: *507995 upstream timed out (145: Connection timed out) while reading response header from upstream, client: ***IP***, server: ***SERVER***, request: "GET ***URL*** HTTP/1.1", upstream: "***UPSTREAM***", host: "***HOST***", referrer: "***REFERER"

I just realized that only during this hour, the firewall lists blocked outgoing traffic exactly to the client IPs of the error log at random ports, i.e., I assume that during this hour, nginx mistakenly sends the proxied request back to the client instead of the internal server.
