SPDY giving HTTP 500

I've compiled nginx with the SPDY patch, at the current latest, so nginx
1.3.14. As far as I can tell, the make was fine, no errors. I'm compiling
against openSSL of the system: OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012, on my CentOS 6.3
server (OVH Kernel). Server has ok amount of RAM, at least 20GB is free. 

./configure was with minimal options.

However, when a client attempts to connect over SPDY, they are faced with a
HTTP 500 error. The errors logs aren't the most useful,. indicating memory
issues, and I can't even find the error when the logging is set to debug.

Here's the error log snippet pertinent:

2013/03/11 22:32:08 [emerg] 10589#0: *1 malloc(18446744073709551615) failed
(12: Cannot allocate memory), client: ****, server: ****, request: "GET /
HTTP/1.1", host: ****

Any ideas why nginx is trying to allocate so much memory?
