streaming request

I'm trying to do a streaming request that uses chunked encoding that gets
forwarded to a back-end node.js http server. In this case the client does
not end the request before it gets a response header from the server.
This works well if using node.js standalone, but when fronted by Nginx,
nginx does not forward the request to my node process and a minute later
returns a 408 to the client.

I'm using nginx 1.5.0 with the following configuration:

upstream myservername {

server {
  listen 80;
  listen 443 ssl;

  server_name myservername;

  ssl_certificate ...
  ssl_certificate_key ...

  location / {
    proxy_buffering off;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;

    proxy_pass http://myservername;

Any clues on how to solve this?
