    CSS background images load slowly via SSL and never seem to be cached


    Dear all,

    When accessed via http my CSS background images
    all seem to be loaded by the browser and then
    cached for future use. So, the first time a page
    loads it may be a litttle slow but after that
    it's fine.
    However, when accessed via https the images never
    seem to be cached and are always slow to load.
    The CSS defines the background images with
    relative paths and does appear to use the current
    scheme correctly.
    Images included via the <img> tag don't seem to
    be affected in the same way: they cache in both
    scenarios.
    Does anyone know if this is a limitation of
    CSS/browsers in general/only some browsers/SSL or
    maybe a configuration problem somewhere?

    Thanks in advance!
