That's not nice at all.

Quite normal on such errors regarless of how they are caused. The
browser incorrecly thinks it has the whole page, and a plain reload only
verifies that the page hasn't been modified which it hasn't.

Hmm.. it looks like you got the whole page on both requests. The odd
thing is that the reply of the first (failing) request was 109 bytes
larger than the second (not failing)..

It would be interesting to see the store.log entries for these requests.

Your parent seems to have servere performance problems. It is not
answering ICP queries in a timely manner and also sporadically refusing
TCP connections on the proxy port.
