You are right. Didn't think of that.

discover_pingback_uri closes the connection after 2048. The problem arises
if the file on the other server is smaller than 2048 (Which admittely
doesn't happen often).

I did some more testing and searching on the net and found this
http://www.io.com/~maus/HttpKeepAlive.html. So adding this "\r\nConnection: close"
to the request URI solves the problem. I tested it and it works fine here.
