It is because your module does not properly handle internal redirects (and
subrequests btw).

As an example, see the first lines of ngx_http_limit_req_handler() or 

Btw, if the purpose of your module is to add header, then it's better to develop
a header filter.

Also note, that is_abuser() blocks nginx process.
