Apart from containing error 503's from your backend going down (?)
there is this line from the requests you refer to:
   13 Debug        c Write error, retval = 25318280, len = 104857948,
errno = Success

looks very much like mine..

setting send_timeout lower does make this problem more frequent for me
and setting this higher makes it less frequent, but why exactly are we
hitting the send timeout here? doesnt make sense to me.
