502 is a proxy error, and is clearly incorrect.

So it's not really a proxy and the server is telling porkies.  And if
it was a proxy it should be 504.

Does anything change if you (substantially) increase that timeout?
Not that it should: keepalives address a different issue.

I would guess the underlying problem is a builtin timeout for CGI
processes.  Since you're running a server for which neither source
nor any meaningful documentation is publicly available, you'll just
have to dig for how to fix that.
