Do you see any cetificate error on startup time ?
Or browsers do not want to accept the certificate ?

I think the order of cetificates in file should be:

1) your site sertificate
2) intermidiate CA cetificate signed by next certificate
3) intermidiate CA cetificate signed by some root CA builtin in browser

Could you post Issuer and Subject of two last certificates if they are public ?

You can do it using
openssl x509 -noout -text -in <cert>

BTW, have you tried to disable SSL sessions in proxied HTTPS as I suggested ?
