Nginx returning 414 even when large_client_header_buffers is set

I suggest you try setting a larger buffer size with
The docs are really clear about the fact a request line cannot exceed the
size of a single buffer (*not* the number * size value).

By changing from the GET to the POST method, are you sure you did not
change anything else about the headers sent? Trying to make your tests
(replaying both the KO & OK requests) with a command-line client displaying
all those headers to you might prove useful.
