Yes - uses a cgi-bin for every user. If you telnet to (for example) on port 80 you get
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

You can then type:
GET / HTTP/1.0
and you will get our home page.

But if you telnet to on port 80, and type that, you get
a redirect to a executable, which redirects you about 3 or 4 times...

Somewhere along there it breaks, probably because of the number of hits their
site is getting.

The problem is that squid then caches the fact that the page is broken,
so you get broken pages for every request for the next few minutes

"negative_ttl 0" in the squid.conf seems to fix it...
