Content load stalls for IE7, nginx 0.7.62, SSL

Hi all,

We’re running an app under rails / unicorn / nginx / ubuntu, and for
some of our users under IE7, the login page doesn’t completely render –
it gets most of the way done and hangs. It’s intermittent, though
standard cache clearing / restarting doesn’t seem to fix it. We haven’t
had any reports of it hanging on any non-SSL page, which leads me to
suspect something in our nginx config rather than the rails stack –
though I’m far from certain.

I’ve done a fair amount of googling on this and haven’t come up with
anything concrete. Anyone know any gotchas for SSL config with IE?

In case it matters, we’re running a star cert from GoDaddy, and not
relying on SNI to handle our multiple hostnames.

Also, here’s a URL that will (sometimes) exhibit the problem:

Thanks in advance – let me know if I can make anythng clearer.
