Further investigation shown that nginx and apache differently handle half-open connections. Bellow is simple in perl to reproduce problem. Problem is caused by shutdown call on client

use IO::Socket::INET;
my $host = "www.server";

my $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(
	PeerAddr => $host,
	PeerPort => 'http(80)',
	Proto    => 'tcp'
unless ($sock) { die "cannot connect\n" }
print $sock "HEAD / HTTP/1.1\r\n";
print $sock "Host: ".$host."\r\n";
print $sock "Accept: */*\r\n";
print $sock "Accept-Encoding: identity\r\n";
print $sock "Connection: close\r\n\r\n";
# shutdown call creates problems
# if commented works for nginx and apache
# if uncomented works only with apache
shutdown($sock, 1);
while (my $line = <$sock>) {
	$line =~ s/[\r\n]$//;
	print $line."\n"; }
close $sock;
