Have you tried a tool like to see what IE8 is
actually getting back from nginx? If it is getting the entire file,
but there is a Vary header present, the old thread mentions that might
be an issue.

We download files using IE8 via an nginx->Tomcat configuration all the
time, and no problems, so it must be something application-specific.
