| I've pasted the logs of two failed requests below. As you can see,

| 10% of the time.

>From looking at this, it might be that your backend is too slow.  We
have a default backend connection timeout of just 0.4 seconds.  Try
increasing that somewhat?  It's a bit surprising that should just hit
POST requests, though.  Alternatively, try with 2.0.6 since it'll have a
«FetchError» log entry when if fails.

| To be honest, I don't entirely understand the logs or their format, but

| deleted, btw).

You have and the session entries are not important.
