Ah, it appears your module does to r->main->count++, if nginx_version >= 8011, which I can't under 0.7.64, but in the module docs, it doesn't say that you can't use the non-blocking sleep with 0.7.64, only that you can't use it after echo_location or echo_subrequest, which I'm not trying to do. So what am I missing for how the non-blocking works in 0.7.64?
