[BUG] Gunzip module may cause requests to hang

I have encountered the following possible bug in Nginx -
When using the proxy_pass directive along with 'gunzip on;' in the same
location, if replies from the remote server are empty but contain the
header 'Content-Encoding: gzip', the request hangs (the worker process
doesn't get stuck and can still serve other requests).

This was reproduced in v1.4.3.

If anyone can verify the problem and suggest a patch to solve the issue,
that would be great.
