No fake_useragent here and looping (squid 1.1.17). Remark: cache_stoplist will
not make the fetches be done directly, it only will stop caching.

Using these settings in squid.conf:

# do not fetch these from parents
hierarchy_stoplist default.asp ie40.asp

# Do not cache these:
cache_stoplist_pattern/i default\.asp$
cache_stoplist_pattern/i ie40\.asp$

and removing (see the FAQ how to remove objects from the cache)

from the cache it seems to work. Thanks to Microsoft for this exciting
morning. May be I should send them a bill (no, not a bill gates ! :-) )
