I deployed a fix that is now part of ooniprobe 1.1.0 in this commit:

This makes exception handling in the HTTP request template more robust.

Also here there are some improvements to the http_requests test that
could also address the root of this issue:


This is also part of 1.1.0.

I believe this should fix the problem.

What I suggest is that when you parse the reports if you only see one
request/response pair you should consider the other one to have failed.
If the test was on the experiment you should consider this a possible
sign of censorship.
