From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000917
BuildID:    2000091706

The cache logic apparently considers name-based virtual hosts with identical IPs
to be the same.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit http://cvs.gnome.org/
2. visit http://www.gnome.org/

cvs.gnome.org and www.gnome.org are the same machine and have the same IP.

Actual Results:  The page displayed is still cvs.gnome.org/.  Subsequent visits
to www.gnome.org/ will still display the cached cvs.gnome.org/.	

Expected Results:  www.gnome.org/ will appear as something other than
cvs.gnome.org/ (namely the GNOME page).

I suspect that this is going to become more important now that ICANN isn't
doling out any more IPs for IP-based virtual hosting (last I heard).
