Summary: webdav backend uses keep-alive, but does not handle

The webdav backend uses a single persistent HTTP connection, by way of
keepalive. However, when using keepalive the client must be prepared to
re-submit requests as the server can close the connection at any time.
This causes backups to fail when the server-side keepalive timeout is
reached, while downloading signatures and such.
I will fix this myself, but I first want to get a couple of other patches
submitted (the webdav url fixing + the asynchronous upload bits, the latter of
which will introduce some utilities I want). Filing as a bug in the meantime.
The two possible suggested fixes:
* Re-establish a connection each time.
* Actually support re-submission; but this is not recommended from my end
since it is somewhat difficult to detect the failure mode (and we do not want
to cause double-submissions of entire volumes; though I have not yet
investigated if this affects uploads).
