    Yes. Stalled transfers should be more obvious when using Squid than
    other proxies. The difference is that Squid reuses ongoing requests for
    the same object, while most other (including Netscape) always starts a
    new request for the object.
This would suggest that a stalled request keeps stalling while a new
request gets served. Why then would you want to have reuse of ongoing

Has anybody looked at the likelyhood that an ongoing request gets reused?
