Hi Christian,

Here's what the headers from
look like:

    HTTP/1.0 200 OK
    Date: Tue, 18 Jun 1996 14:37:00 GMT
    Server: Apache/1.0.3
    Content-type: text/html
    Set-Cookie: s=proxy8398835108620942; path=/

Note, there is no "Expires" or "Last-Modified" line. Without those,
Squid chooses a default TTL, maybe one week. If you want this
page to not get cached, you can change your configuration to read
something like:

    http 4 0
    ttl_pattern . 0 20% 1440

IMHO, the admins at should set up their server
to return an Expires header with that page so the caches don't
have to guess about it.
