It might be a known bug when browsers ask for multiple ranges in a
single request, Varnish may serve the first one, disregard the rest
and think it is done, so that leaves the browser hanging waiting for
the rest of the response.

I think it you can work around that in VCL by detecting when you have
more than one range and return a 416 response.
