No, unfortunately.  This happens in maybe one out of a few thousand
requests.  The only test case I can really come up with is "make lots of
web requests on different threads until a crash happens."  I will poke
around a bit and see if I can come up with a better repro, but it's just
too intermittent to predict.  I suspect that it is dependent on a socket
error to trigger.
