ngx_http_read_client_request_body() causing random timeouts

Hi,

I've been trying to identify what is causing timeouts towards the
client when a POST request is sent to nginx. I have a custom module
that reads the POST payload and runs in ACCESS phase. It's based on
nginx-form-input module from agentz.

Normally, the modules works OK, but it sometimes times out and nginx
logs the following:

2011/05/31 09:31:16 [alert] 25731#0: *1 zero size buf in output t:1
r:0 f:0 0000000204DFD000 0000000204DFD000-0000000204DFD000
0000000000000000 0-0 while sending request to upstream, client:
192.168.0.27, server: 192.168.0.27, request: "POST /slurp_md5.php
HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://192.168.0.9:80/slurp_md5.php", host:
"192.168.0.27"

I've noticed that this only happens with keep-alive connections.

Can anybody shed some light on this? I've looked at other modules and
nginx core, but can't seem to figure what could be causing this.

Thanks. Code for the sample module is enclosed below. nginx is vanilla
1.0.3 (with perl module compiled).

Cheers,
Srebrenko
