like other cache administrator, i just found the looping
probleme on www.microsoft.com page

squid 1.1.14, with special microsoft rule
refresh_pattern/i \.microsoft\.com 1440 40% 20160

imagine the following resquest in this order :

Browser Requested URL Effect
IE4 www.microsoft.com DIRECT / CACHE redirect to ie40.asp
nonIE4 www.microsoft.com HIT / Get redirected to ie40.asp
nonIE4 ie40.asp DIRECT / CACHE redirect to default.asp
IE4 ie40.asp HIT / Get redirected to default.asp
IE4 default.asp DIRECT / CACHE redirect to ie40.asp

        so you got the HIT loop :

        www.microsoft.com -> ie40.asp -> default.asp -> ie40.asp .....

        -> i've put '.asp' on hierarchy and cache stoplist...
        it seems to works fine, but the question is : is this a good
        idea ?

        .asp page seems to be dynamique page like cgi ?
