                Response.Clear();
                Response.ContentType = res.MimeType;

                Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.Private);

Hello Jelster..
maybe it is due to the bug related to nocache headers.  this code may help
Response.Expires = -1
    Response.Cache.SetNoStore()
    Response.AppendHeader("Pragma", "no-cache")
    Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
    Response.BinaryWrite(myByteBuffer)
    Response.Flush()
    Response.Close()
