One possible cause to this is if the site encodes the requesting IP in
the session, and you allow your first Squid to go direct bypassing the

Setting prefer_direct off, or never_direct allow all, may help in such
case. But it this is the cause then it's really a bug in the web site as
source IP may vary pretty randomly when requests is forwarded via a mesh
of proxies or when the client is roaming between different networks.
