I don't see this behavior with Mozilla on WinXP.  I checked the HTTP 
headers that were being returned, and there are no expired headers being 

I could be wrong, but as near as I can tell, the reason you need to 
press CTRL-RELOAD is because without doing this, the client is not 
sending any requests to the server.  As the server is not getting the 
requests, there is not much that can be changed on the server side to 
fix this.

For Mozilla, this behavior can be controlled by the preferences.  From 
the menu bar, select Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Cache.  The 
section to look for is entited "Compare the page in the cache to the 
page on the network".  "When the page is out of date" is a good answer here.
