I can't really say that your VCL supports the problem you are describing.

However, request pipelining/connection reuse and return(pipe) often does bite
a bit, so I suggest you add this snippet and try again:

    sub vcl_pipe {
        set bereq.http.connection = "close";

(and you can remove the Accept-Encoding section, Varnish does that internally in 3.0)
