Subject Re: More index troubles (q4e this time)
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 20:54:01 GMT
Back in June it wasn't confirmed, and unable to reproduce it.
Maybe at that time it was caused by an user proxy messing with the
headers. Now it definitely seems to affect more people, Nginx or not,
I don't know, but the if-modified-since is being sent.

Anyway, I expect it to be fixed pretty soon.
