The vintage is 2009. I would assume that the proxy (that scrambled the  
connection header), received a header block composed with \r and \r\r. It  
parsed it, modified it and then glued it together and botched the header  
termination sequence.

I just checked, and the URL in question responds with sane HTTP now.
