$https with SSL proxy

Dear all,

starting with version 1.1.11 the $https variable is activated by
default. This is good as many applications rely on them because apache
is using this header.
However, now i cannot set or map this variable (nginx: [emerg] the
duplicate "https" variable). We have a load balancer in front of the web
servers which does all SSL traffic. The nginx servers can only differ
between http and https via a header sent by the load balancer, the nginx
port is the same. That hasn't been a problem in < 1.1.11. Many plugins,
codings in applications use this $https header so it would be nice if i
could assign it manually.

Any ideas?
