Well, I'm starting to narrow it down now. Yes, it happens on NT as well as
Win95. Here's how I got it as well:

Clicked on a URL and it just "waited" for a long time - then it'd give that
error. If I abort with the stop button lets say after 10 seconds and click
the URL again then is comes through no problems.

I can nearly duplicate this everytime now. The trick is to wait for it to
start "waiting".

It's only 1% of all TCP requests that this is happening to, but it's still
annoying to say the least.

Another notice - should I be able to get a TCP_MISS/500 on a sibling HIT?
Well, I did :-) (only one or two requests though).

Is anyone else getting a TCP_MISS errors out there that compare to what
I've got here?
