nginx isn't forward proxy, and it know nothing about
Proxy-Connection. If server you are connecting to happens to keep
connection alive due to "Proxy-Connection: keep-alive" header -
the behaviour you see is quite expected.
You have to manually remove this header from request via something
proxy_set_header Proxy-Connection "";
Or, much better, just don't use nginx as forward proxy.
