Hi Konrad,

If you don't want to try master, know that I am using that combination now, even with a dragonfly release that has the bug. I disabled sendfile support, and it is working great. The combination runs great even without sendfile support, as long as your requirements can live without it. I use it on an image heavy site which hits sendfile often, but it is low traffic, so the system is usually idle, and the difference is not noticeable.

I know that there were some discussion about that combination a while ago -- and we also had been bitten by the bug that scrambled uploaded files. I also remember seing patches; but did they solve the problem? Is nginx/php_fpm now a well-running combination?
