Hmm, actually it was resizing and back/forward. And yes, I use netscape
3... that should be broken enough. Originally I wanted to add a Last-
Modifed; but I could not see a way of getting that out of the database,
so I proposed a patch for an expiry of 30 minutes. (Which is about
20 minutes more than it takes do download the page in switzerland
around 13GMT :-)

Seems this needs one more itertation; as the form now also reloads
itself; it could have a longer TTL. Any other cache pragma's one
cann set ?
