here's a problem i've been having since i upgraded our server to version
1.2 of squid. i've emailed this list about this problem before, but more
information is at hand ..

when i visit a page with internet explorer 4 on the mac (insert
anti-microsloth comments here) that has temporarily or permanetly moved, i
get the wonderful error message "unable to load <url>".

all was working with ie4 perfectly until i upgraded to 1.2 :(

so .. has anything changed across versions that might affect what squid
returns for 301/302's ? if i knew C i'd look - bit i don't <sobs>

following is two example of problem pages ..

[byronj@purple bin]$ client http://gpu.srv.ualberta.ca/~mmalowan/Picks.html

and on to another problem...
before i upgraded we were running 1.1.20.  suddenly pages were starting
half way through the html code, but hitting reload generally fixed the
problem.  i asked this list and was asked if my parent cache was running
version 1.2 of squid.  i checked, they were, i upgraded to 1.2 and the
problem went away.
recently it's come back and they're running a version of squid that i can't
get a hold of - one with in house modifications.  so.. is this a known
problem - can different versions of 1.2 talk to each other - or might it be
some other problem?
many thanks.
