Why do you think it is still being cached?

One thing I found a while back is that changing things like local_domain
and the cache_stoplist etc. in squid.conf doesn't have any effect on
something that is _already_ cached. So if your home page is cached, and
then you tell squid not to cache it, it will still be returned from the
cache! The solution is to hit Shift-Reload or whatever in your browser, or
/usr/local/squid/bin/client -r ... to ensure it is flushed from your cache.

The cache entries only tell Squid what to save in the cache, not what to
retrieve from it.
