I got this problem with MSIE too. I found that sometimes MSIE screws up, but
the worst thing is that then MSIE still caches the doc itself. Even "reload"
didn't reload it (!). What I had to do was empty MSIE's own cache, quit MSIE
(otherwise it can still keep it in memory), and start again.

This might be what you are seeing, and the neighbors stuff you talked about
is a red-herring. Maybe.

Failing that, look at your access.log, and compare the sizes of files
mentioned in there, to the expected size (use "client -r -m HEAD" for each
URL and look at the Content-Length), and see if it _is_ really squid causing
the problem. Is it only with certain URLs?
