It may be even simpler than this. I got thinking and set up a redirect
on my home server which hosts multiple virtual domains. I requested a
file which redirects to one of the other domains, got a 302 followed by
a 200 on the other domain. I requested it again, got a 302 but no 200.
So, the browser caches the redirected file. It can't cache the
original file because it doesn't exist, but when it gets redirected to
the other one it pulls it from its own cache.
