More than that. It would also imply that there is an intermediate
caching server which was responding positively to any cache-checking
that IE was doing based on what it had in the TIF, either normally
or for a plain F5. Ctrl-F5 means that instead of doing cache-checking
plain requests are issued. That just makes it less likely that
an intermediate cache will try to fulfill a request.
I'm not sure what to think about the fact that the IE7 User-Agent
appears to be a factor in this incident. E.g. if that is a less common
requestor why would a file be cached? To experiment with it
they could try spoofing MSIE 6.0.
