More information:

With keepalive_timeout 65, this is what /nginx_status looks like, and
new connections take 5-20 seconds to start delivering content.

Active connections: 1552 
server accepts handled requests
 2940 2940 38965

With keepalive_timeout 0, this is what /nginx_status looks like
with the same workload, new connections start receiving
content immediately.

Active connections: 2 
server accepts handled requests
 5797 5797 5796

Can anyone suggest what to look at next?  Is there some
extra logging I can turn on that might shed light on the situation?
