F0lks, has anyone figured out the best, up-to-date directives to use in 
Apache/OpenSSL to workaround the 'nokeepalive' bugs in IE? I have been 
googling around but there is a lot of conflicting stuff out there (and 
of course you all will know the definitive answer). 

If you don't know what I'm talking about here is the canonical FAQ item:

But this doesn't mention what versions are affected, and we are still 
seeing 404-type problems on Mac IE5 even though this is supposed to be 
limited to IE4?...

I've seen this suggested and I intend to try it soon as the client stops 
looking at it...
BrowserMatch "MSIE [1-4]" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
      downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
BrowserMatch "MSIE [5-9]" ssl-unclean-shutdown

So does anyone have a mod_ssl setup that works for everybody? could I 
steal it? ;)
