Fair enough...

Squid is working exactly as it should in this case.

You need to make use of the no_cache option in squid.conf:

 From the squid.conf file:
>acl QUERY urlpath_regex cgi-bin \?
>no_cache deny QUERY

In your case, you should either add to the acl list or create one of your
own, and use it with no_cache <new-acl-name> The same treatment which is
done to cgi-bin files and URL's with ?'s in them.

I guess you could alternatively use a file here with a list of locally
hosted web sites instead of an acl list explicitly listed in squid.conf?
