Pass for IE6 did not solve the problem, I had to pipe it which means its
 uncachable :(

are there any workarounds or tweaks for IE in Varnish? ... for example
when IE asks for something by http1.1 protokol why is the answer in http
1.0 ? Is there any way how to force response to be the same protocol
