If I have a HTTP request that somehow generates more than 64 MB of data in a single chunk of memory and this chunck needs to me realloc'd, then valgring starts complaning.

Ah, this info narrows things down a bit.  Can you try configuring jemalloc with --enable-munmap and see if the problem persists?  It seems probable that the VALGRIND_MAKE_MEM_UNDEFINED() call in chunk_recycle() should be unconditional.
