IE6, Prototype AJAX, HTTPS - Inconsistency issues

We are facing an inconsistent issue in our application. We have developed few pages using Prototype AJAX calls and our
application is over https. Some cases, we get "unable to read request from client". We kind of feel that, the issue is with IE6,
AJAX, HTTPS combination and it looks socket connection is opened, but request is not sent to server. Hence, server returns
an error saying "unable to read request from client" and the error is from Tivoli Access Manager / ALTEON.

And if i use HTTPWatch for seeing the request and its strange that the request has header content-length as 16, but there
is NO DATA sent to the server. On some occasions, data is sent. And its highly inconsistent.

I found these articles, but not sure how to reproduce this problem consistently. Can anyone suggest some ideas/fixes.
