The problem described in this page is the broken proxy at Tel Aviv 
university, I did not have this problem with other proxys. This proxy 
IGNORE the special headers moin alreay use to disable caching of 
cookies. You may have the same problem. Try to contact the proxy 

About the patch Alexander suggested, the code to disable caching is 
already in moin. You may try to add a call to self.disableHttpCaching() 
in request.run() and see if that helps.
