Hi. I know not much about load balancing, Radware or clustered Tomcats.
But I can tell you that over the years, I have encountered numerous 
cases of inconsistent behaviours of IE, varying between versions, 
sub-versions and patches, and even between different workstations having 
the exact same version of IE, but having different other software 
packages installed.
For instance, there are cases where, for no very apparent or documented 
reason, IE will issue a HEAD request for a URL, prior to issuing a GET 
or POST to that same URL.  Presumably (but that is pure speculation on 
my part) that is to find out in advance what kind of response it is 
likely to get afterward.
Maybe that can explain what you're seeing ?
