Sorry that I misunderstand your problem. You are talking about using
LVS to construct persistent service and working around the different
src IPs from non-persistent proxy cluster, and I am talking about
building a persistent proxy cluster.

Well, why not persuade T-Online to use LVS to build their non-persistent 
proxy servers into a persistent virtual proxy server? It might be easier 
to solve the problem.

Sure, no problem, at least as an option.
