A proxy on the client side can't be the issue, they're completely
separated (different organizations).

There's no proxy on the serverside. There's a loadbalancer setup
however, which I'm somewhat suspecting (though it sounds unlikely a
loadbalancer would mix up sessions).

I've suggested the loadbalancer gets removed from the setup, we'll see
if that solves the problem.
Meanwhile, ideas are still welcome :)
