News sites and other pages with CMS generate s.t. strange names or maybe unvalid code?

The following site to named URL is detected as type "x-squid-internal/vary (HTML Document)" and Seamonkey doesn't know how to handle it.

With Mozilla 1.7.13 viewing content on news sites (e.g. www.Spiegel.de) was no problem. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open URL
2. Click on "weiter" or picture
3. 

Actual Results:  
Seamonkey opens progress dialog / Download Manager for downloading the following page.

Expected Results:  
Next site opens

Opera has no problems.

Ethereal shows that the page sometimes sends "Content-Type: x-squid-internal/vary" as MIME-Type. Possibly a few of their proxy servers are missconfigured, might be a Tech Evanglism issue then.

Now I even get this "download" when I visit the starting page of www.spiegel.de

A blankpage.html is same type as the picture sites.
That page loads (404) here. Could you verify whether you experience this issue in a recent release (http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/) please?
