Hmm, a GET request should not ever call read() because there's no  
body content to read.  It may happen if someone sends a bad GET  
request with a Content-Length header and then never sends any data.   
Have you ever been able to reproduce it?  You may need to enable Cat  
debugging to get more info on the request.  Try reproducing by  
crafting your own bad GET request.
