I just independently arrived at the same conclusion, so I think that _is_
the correct fix.

I think what happens is a request comes in to a service selector, goes to
proxy, then http_response_sent happens, gets blessed back to base, then
backend times out or whatever, and boom.

The hard thing here will be writing a test case for this.
