Hi Paul,

thanks for your time responding. I'll answer inline:

> Did your forwarder perhaps not answer (in time) ?

They did; the answer was instantaneous, and also tcpdump showed the
response to have arrived within milliseconds.

> Maybe try setting cache-max-negative-ttl: to something like 5 seconds ?

It's already at 10s. I also know about u-control flush-negative.

Kind regards,
