I think the problem is that Cern doesn't cache html documents at all. It
only caches images, or very rare documents as you can see when looking
into the cern cache. Squid has a different behaviour in standard configuration.
I modified the configuration in that way that i only cache documents which
DO HAVE a last-modified header. Others i do not cache.
