That's no solution, it's a workaround. I'm a programmer, I'd rather
find the problem and fix it. What's the point of having a cache in
epiphany at all if it's not working? Might as well rip out that code.
Although, this would be a good way to track down the bug(s), by
comparing the traffic between epiphany and Squid with the traffic
between Squid and the internet. If epiphany is doing the right thing,
they should be identical, as anything that is in Squid's cache should
have already been cached by the browser.
