I would be interested in a binary capture file of all the frames, starting
at frame 1700.

My guess would be that the answer contains a "Content-Length: xxx" header
but more than xxx bytes are being returned to the client. The client
will then have to reject all the data after the first xxx bytes. That's
why you see a RST packet after each segment that is coming from the
server.

The binary trace file will tell if this is the case. And if not, it might
give clues to what *did* happen. Just the wireshark text output almost 
never gives enough information to really tell whet the problem is...
