Problems viewing HTML source from Internet Explorer

Got a weird problem going with Internet Explorer (version 5.00 on Windows 2000).
Sometimes (but not always) I can't view the source of a page served by Orion. And I can't seem to be able to figure out any pattern.
I select View | Source from the menu and nothing happens. Doesn't seem to matter whether it's a static *.html page or something generated on the fly by a servlet.
Further weirdness. Sometimes I can view the source of page generated by out.println()s in doPost(), but only after receiving a warning that the source might not be accurate. Sometimes I can view the source generated by Reverse2Servlet's doGet(), but once things have been doPost()'d, I can no longer view source.
Anyone else ever experience this problem? Any ideas on how to fix?
Note that simply saving the Orion-served pages for subsequent viewing is not a perfect solution because IE inserts extra data into the HTML. (Sometimes if the page is servlet-generated, it omits everything inside the HTML body tags, which is exactly what I want to see...).

I use IE 5.5 on Win2K and have never run into this problem. Which version of Orion are you using (although I can't imagine why that would matter)?

Hmmm. I'm using Orion 1.5.2 also, so that's no help.

I have had similar problems with IE on all sorts of pages. I always wrote it off as an IE problem. Shutting IE down and restarting has always worked for me.

Well, deleting nearly 40,000 cache, er, uh, Temporary Internet Files seemed to do the trick.
At some point I realized that I stopped being able to view the source of any page. On a lark, I figured I'd do a purge of cache files, and whaddya know -- it fixed the problem.

Hey, what's amazing now is how fast JavaRanch pages load now that I got rid of all those cache files...

Now this needs to be documented somewhere.
