All sites, bumped or not should be logging a CONNECT request. We are
still sorting out exactly how the bumped ones gets displayed though.

For sites which you *prevent* bumping (broken_sites), of course you
will never see the GET. The GET is *inside* the encrypted portion of the
request which "ssl_bump deny ..." prevents Squid decrypting.

Both sites include embeded objects (images, scripts, CSS) using domains
which never appear in the browser address bar. You may need to add those
alternative domains into your broken_sites ACL to keep the same
behaviour for the main HTML portion of the site and its other objects.

Other issues:

Twitter has some serious cacheability problems, and a number of smaller
annoying bugs affecting proxy responses:

  * A gzip-compressed response was sent when it wasn't asked for.
  * The resource doesn't send Vary consistently.
  * The ETag doesn't change between negotiated representations.
  * There was a problem checking for Last-Modified validation support.
  * A ranged request returned another representation.

Facebook has improved noticably over the last year or so, but the main
site still has one major Vary issue that breaks cacheability:

  * This response is negotiated, but doesn't have an appropriate Vary
  * The response body is different when content negotiation happens.
  * Content negotiation for gzip compression makes the response 19%

These problems are operating on both the HTTP and HTTPS accesses to the
