This object is updated, how come Squid doesn't not this?

I have a CERN httpd running locally. I also have a squid cache running.
When I updated a .gif file, it turns out squid is constantly giving me the
one from the cache, not the one from the local server:

868436745.836 79 TCP_HIT/200 4115 GET - NONE/- image/gif

Squid notices a TCP-HIT, but the file *is* modified. What is going wrong?
When I connect directly to httpd, I get the new file allright, so it is
squid that seems in the wrong.

The browser used was OmniWeb. A reload asked by the browser kept resulting
in the cached object, not in the changed newer version.

How do I find out what is going wrong?
