I got the "414 Request-URI Too Large" error page from nginx using a 12kb query string.
I got the "Connection Reset" error when send a 1300kb query string.

I think this is an appropriate expression to response the errors (says 414) and avoid DDOS attacks (by reset).

I am still getting the connection reset problem with 6kb string! but working fine with 5kb string.

There isn't a use case for this - searching for anything that big is just abusing the system.  An error response is entirely appropriate.  -> wontfix
