stuck on problem with a URL

We have a problem here with a particular URL. The setup is:

  customer netscape browser --> squid 1.1.9 --> squid 1.1.9

when the client requests this URL:

it responds with 'object contains no data'. Here's an example using lynx:

  [root@proxy cache]# export http_proxy=
  [root@proxy cache]# lynx \

  lynx: Start file could not be found or is not text/html or text/plain

If I unset http_proxy it pulls the URL up just fine.

I looked at the object as stored on disk and it looks like:

  HTTP/1.0 301
  Server: iChat/2.21
  Date: Mon, 02 Jun 1997 18:13:25 GMT
  Allow: GET, POST
  Expires: Mon, 16 Jun 1997 18:13:25 GMT
  Content-Length: 0

Which I would interpret as a redirect to the URL I just asked for. If I
turn off proxies on the client it works fine.

To make things more confusing I have configured my desktop system
and my development squid cache the same way (same parent):

  my netscape browser --> my squid 1.1.9 --> same parent

and it works fine!?!

The only difference I am aware of is that someone has dorked up the DNS
entry for the host latrec. On the leaf proxy server it resolves to:

  [root@proxy cache]# nslookup


The second address is on an internal net and not reachable from
the leaf proxy server.

On my development proxy server I run my own DNS and latrec only
resolves to
