I expect the answer involves the size of the file (> 4MB). The default
squid.conf has, if I remember, an upper bound of 4MB on cached files.

# You cannot have a max object size that is greater than
# cache_mem. We recommend that max object sizes are no greater
# than (cache_mem / 4).
# Objects greater than max-obj-size will be proxied, but not
# cached.

( I think cache_mem defaults to 16MB )

-- jrg.
