My Google-fu suggests that Privoxy filters out the "Range" HTTP request
header field by default , which would cause this behavior. There do
appear to be plans to change this , though I'm not sure what the
status of that is.
It may be possible to configure privoxy to stop filtering out range
requests; I'll leave that as an exercise for someone who uses it.
Possibly useful docs:
