#1041: sess_timeout being applied during HTTP request
 Reporter:  insyte  |        Type:  defect
   Status:  new     |    Priority:  normal
Milestone:          |   Component:  build 
  Version:  3.0.0   |    Severity:  normal
 Keywords:          |  
 If I manually enter a POST request (via netcat) and stop typing after
 entering a few bytes of the body, after 5 seconds I receive a 503 from
 varnish and "FetchError   c backend write error: 11 (Resource temporarily
 unavailable)" is logged to the varnish log.

 The time before the 503 error changes with the value of "sess_timeout".
 Tested at 10 and 15 seconds.

 We are occasionally receiving complaints about failed POSTs, primarily
 from users with slow connections.

 This seems closely related, if not identical, to both #849 and #748.
