This is indeed buggy, the yaws reverse proxy code is far from 
production quality. I think I've written that several times
in various release notes and such. 

The URL http://metafrog.erlang-projects.org/wiki/showPage.yaws?node=Timebomb
return (assuming a 1.1 browser connects) broken chunked 
encodings. Needs debugging.

I strongly advise against using the revproxy code in yaws in
real setups. It's an experimental feature.
