[squid-users] Question RE handling of FTP errors

I am trying to work out squid's (3.0stable20) behavior when used for
(non-anonymous) FTP downloads. I use an own test ftp site for this, so I
can see the FTP logs.

When I download an existing file, all is as expected.

When I try to download a non-existing file, squid obviously tries to get
it from the origin server, which gives him the error code 550.
But this does not seem to be forwarded to the browser or other client;
the browser displays an empty page and when downloading with wget it says
"Proxy request sent, awaiting response... No data received."
Not even an HTTP header in return.

I would have expected that squid passes on the error status or displays
its own error page as it does for http errors!?
We have a pretty standard config so I won't post it here for now. Any
ideas ? Or am I on the wrong track?

Regards, Jakob Curdes
