  I agree... but we set up a well internal cached proxy conf using icp synchro
on fast ethernet links, we are also short of disk space on the central machine,
and morever it just adds delay on users queries... that last point is my main
problem today.

  I tried the 0 swap_cache conf... it gets errors when playing with
mem_cache/disk_cache, and it still does query on cache keeping the same delay
problem on queries, no ?

  Would you give more detail about your strict refresh_pattern idea ?...
I checked the docs and code but I can't figure out how to use this pattern to
supress caching...
