Microsoft describes the exact behaviour of their bug on this webpage:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=316431

Microsoft says that this bug is "by design" and that they will not ifx it. This 
is just SOOO arrogant!!

--

Tomcat adds the respective caching headers to the HTTP header automatically if 
and only if a resource of a webapp is being accessed for which a user data 
constraint of CONFIDENTIAL has been set.

I PROPOSE TO HAVE A SPECIAL ATTRIBUTE WITHIN THE CONNECTOR CONFIGURATION BY 
WHICH TOMCAT CAN BE FORCED NOT TO SET CACHING HEADERS ITSELF.

*** PLUS ***

I DON'T LIKE THAT THIS BUG HAS BEEN MARKED AS INVALID!
SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE REPORTED THIS BEHAVIOUR AND a FIX IS POSSIBLE AND 
STRAIGHTFORWARD TO APPLY.
(Search for 'no-cache' within the connector codebase and put an if(doCaching) 
bracket around it. That's all there is to it.)

I leave it to the tomcat developers to reopen this bug as I regard it as 
somehow impolite to do this myself. However, I strongly recommend you people to 
do so. This bug is reproducible on every InternetExplorer. A lot of people will 
get headaches and spend days on investigation unless you add the proposed 
attribute to the connector configuration or at least place a comment on the 
webpage which informs developers of the effect in question.
