Dear all,

I used Stephane's echoping package to test two sibling caches at our
campus. One the first squid-1.1beta28, on the other squid-1.0.22
is installed.
If I echoping the nasty http://www.microsoft.com/, I receive different
values for squid-1.1 and for squid-1.0:

for squid-1.1:
./echoping -h http://www.microsoft.com/ -n 5 tohotom.vein.hu:3128
Elapsed time: 29.551170 seconds
Elapsed time: 45.124003 seconds
Elapsed time: 21.201108 seconds
Elapsed time: 39.664328 seconds
Elapsed time: 41.987765 seconds

for squid-1.0:
./echoping -h http://www.microsoft.com/ -n 5 almos.vein.hu:3128
Elapsed time: 35.612190 seconds
Elapsed time: 0.580228 seconds
Elapsed time: 0.526058 seconds
Elapsed time: 0.603988 seconds
Elapsed time: 0.495300 seconds

I think that the behaviour of squid-1.0 is more appropriate in this case.

It would be nice to eliminate nasty HTTP server responses (e.g. where
Date: and Exprires: header are the same) in such cases when a certain
page is not generated dynamically.
