Comment (by Jalada):

 It appears the problem is related to Lighttpd being strict about receiving
 a Content-Length: http://forum.lighttpd.net/topic/482

 I haven't tested it conclusively, but I've found adding:
 {{{$r['headers']['Content-Length'] = 0;}}}
 to line 245 (above the $transports line), which is explicitly defining
 Content-Length as 0 for a null body, seems to fix my scheduled posts
 problem and has made the errors go away.

 I've attached a quick diff file too.
