Is there some peculiarity with Opera that we need to take into account on the server? Perhaps some HTTP 1.1 implementation issue or something?
Or perhaps someone has a suggetion how I could investigate this further?
Ah-Ha! It's my caching preferences that are making the difference, and not the browser itself or the fact of it being asp. The IIS server is just stopping after a 304. Well, I've left the topic area of the Browser forum, and will probably need to haunt the Microsoft forum now.
Thank you encyclo for pushing me to look more seriously at the server logs.
I have confirmed the analysis, by the way, by setting my Opera preferences to "Never" for rechecking images. The page loads fine with that setting. However, I'd better check other browsers and set them to "always check"...it still looks like maybe Opera is stopping after the 304 rather than the server, because no more GETs arrived.
By the way, one cookie is being set, and the server headers are:
