Where can I find this "ACT" test suite?  My attempts to google for it have

I've run some quick & dodgy local tests with persistent connections and
chunked encoding that found that no differences even close to 20x slower
that you're seeing.  I can't think of any other significant differences that
HTTP/1.1 might trigger, though.

Failing all else, a copy of the exact text of the request your test suite
sends would be handy.
