HTTP HEAD timeout

I'm using nginx 1.7.7 as a reverse proxy in front of a Apache CouchDB.
Access via browser to CouchDB data works like a charm. However I have
trouble with replication (which runs via HTTPs). This is what I found out:
CouchDB would issue a HTTP HEAD first and then perform GET/POST as per its
algorythm. However the HEAD request times out. I then tried to replicate
that behavior using CURL. This is what I found:
curl -v --head http://myserver/couch
- works as expected
curl -v -X HEAD http://myserver/couch
- times out. Now I suspect that CouchDB uses a call similar to the later and
thus runs into the timeout.
I verified: the timeout also happens when I do a -X HEAD to a base address
(one that is not redirected to CouchDB), so I need to change something (can
I?) on the nginx side.
What are my options?
