We had a power failure over the weekend which caused all equipment to be
rebooted. Now connections to the above site work. No changes were made
to the squid configuration, we're still using 'anonymization'.

One other point, during testing, I was manually removing cookies from
the cookie jar ($HOME/.netscape/cookies) and I think - though I'm not
certain - that the domain part of the cookie changed...

Thanks for the help, sorry it was a bit of a red herring,
