      Description

      Steps to reproduce the problem:

      • cache is empty
      • send a conditional If-modified-since request
      • backend server responds with a 304 Not modified (the response does not contain the "Last-modified" header, this conforms to rfc 2616 chapter 10.3.5)
      • the response is stored in the cache
      • send another conditional If-modified-since request
      • as the cache entry does not contain a Last-modified header to match with the If-modified-since request header, the cache considers the entry cannot be used and sends a request again to the backend server
