Damned. No. I don't want to cache big objects.
sorry for my bad english ... :(

Are you sure about the disconnection between the pass action and the
send_timeout parameter ?

Ok, I understand the time-out of 10min.
But with the return(pass) I've just added, varnish continue to make
a time-out after 10min.

So I have to put the send_timeout option to a higher value even if I
make a return(pass). 1200s may not be enough because personal or
foreign connection may be slower then the one I test at home. I put
6000s to be large :)

thanks for your help Goeff
