 Reporter:  lgx    |        Type:  enhancement
   Status:  new    |    Priority:  low        
Milestone:         |   Component:  varnishd   
  Version:  3.0.2  |    Severity:  normal     
 Keywords:         |  
 "The version of an HTTP message is indicated by an HTTP-Version field in
 the first line of the message. If the protocol version is not specified,
 the recipient must assume that the message is in the simple HTTP/0.9
 format".  -- http/1.1

 "After receiving and interpreting a request message, a server responds in
 the form of an HTTP response message.

        Response        = Simple-Response | Full-Response

        Simple-Response = [ Entity-Body ]
 " -- http/1.0

 It seems that varnishd can't handle Simple-Response from backend properly.
 Instead italways response with a 503 error code to user.
