I doubt that client-half-closes is the cause to IE4 hangs. It is more
likely persistent connections trouble in either Squid or IE4.
Unfortunately I cant run both Squid and IE4 at the same time (only one
usable machine here).

Back on the half-close track:

It is possible to disable half-close client support in Squid if you
like. Personally I think off should be the default setting, but for the
time being on is the default setting.
