On further investigation, it appears to be two problems:

  - we have a rule http_access deny localhost (and local_domains)
    This seems to stop the retrieval of objects local to the cache.

  - we have authentication installed (username/password)
    My browser [Netscape 4.0x] doesn't seem to offer me an opportunity to
    enter this information.

I guess this is all down to the icon coming from a local URL
'' and our proxy.config autoconfiguration script
says 'fetch directly'... the cache denies this.

I'll have a think about how (if possible) to structure the rules such
that this sort of request is allowed, bypassing the above restrictions.

If not... some sort of fix...?
