[squid-users] Windows Messenger through Squid

I'm trying to setup a Squid server (Centos 5.5, Squid 2.6-STABLE21,
x64) to help my users to connect to Windows Live (as well as to provide
navigation). They _must_ use Windows Messenger (4.x, 5.x - the ones
shipped by default with Windows XP).
The Windows Messenger app login successfully (if you enter a wrong
username/passw combination it refuses to connect) but cannot complete
the sign in process, displaying (almost indefinitely "Singing in...").
Looking in access.log, I only see:

1288735315.171 6858 TCP_MISS/200 8272 CONNECT
login.live.com:443 - DIRECT/ -

And then (many times, actually!):

1288735321.511 2048 TCP_MISS/200 1539 POST - DIRECT/

I tried using Windows Live Messenger (2009) and it worked perfectly. I
even tried using an ISA Server 2006 with Windows Messenger (5.x) and it
worked as well. I don't have yet any special/tricky ACL, only
"http_access allow all" to avoid confusions.

Does anybody has a similar setup (squid + windows messenger) ? Any help
is appreciated.
