You should probably use:
and perhaps:
cache_stoplist cgi-bin ?

This way your squid should always retrieve data directly from the web
server for every request - well, it worked for me :-)

Note that squid still acts as a proxy, the above just stops it from being
cached. If you want web browsers to access the web server directly, then
it's up to the web browsers to be configured not to use the proxy for the
specific host - providing of course they are able to access it directly.
