panic: persistConn was already in LRU

goroutine 609111 [running]:

created by net/http.(*Transport).dialConn
        /opt/dev/gopkg/go/src/net/http/transport.go:1062 +0xda5

this is part of my code:

func DoRequest(/* som arguments */) {
        // Very high frequency call code
	var res *http.Response
	err = nil
	if r.Timeout > 0 {
		err = errors.New("timeout")
		c := make(chan *httpPeek)
		go func() {
			newRes, newErr := httpClient.Do(req)
			select {
			case c <- &httpPeek{newRes, newErr}:
				if newErr == nil && newRes != nil && newRes.Body != nil {
					// Discard and close so we can reuse it
					io.Copy(ioutil.Discard, newRes.Body)
		select {
		case <-time.After(r.Timeout):
		case v := <-c:
			if v != nil {
				res = v.res
				err = v.err
	} else {
		res, err = httpClient.Do(req)
	if err != nil {
		return nil, err
      // other code..
func init() {
	timeout := time.Minute
	httpClient = &http.Client{
		Transport: &http.Transport{
			MaxIdleConnsPerHost:   5,
			TLSClientConfig:       &tls.Config{InsecureSkipVerify: true},
			ResponseHeaderTimeout: timeout,
		Timeout: timeout,

It's very hard to reproduce, program running about 20 hours, then panic and exit !!

I saw a previous report of this too (in #18061), which is worrying, but in the previous case the poster couldn't answer whether their program was race-free and I spent a fair bit of time reading the relevant code again and couldn't see a way for this to happen.

@zeropool, how easily can you reproduce this? Can you send a complete program that causes the program? If so, and you're unable to run the race detector yourself, I could run your stand-alone reproducer program on a 64-bit host to check for races.

FWIW that previous report is an exact duplicate of this one (filed the same day, and it has the same code snippets), probably opened by another person working on the same codebase as zeropool (or maybe it's even the same person).

@botvs, @zeropool, is the full code for this available? Are you still having this problem? Can you still reproduce it with Go1.8beta2?
