Nginx Load Balancer - Random file named "download" when using Chrome.

We are using Nginx 1.4.6 as a Load Balancer for our website. Sometimes,
when a user loads the website, the browser will start downloading a
file named "download" which contains the HTTP Response headers. So far,
what we know is that it only happens when the browser is Chrome and it's
maybe once every 60-70 page loads. I've narrowed it down to the LB since
loading the page directly on the app server never triggers a download.
You also see the following error : "Resource interpreted as Document but
transferred with MIME type application/octet-stream:" in the Chrome console.
