I'm running the 304 proxy on NT. I just checked the modification date
of the buffer files. Last access was on Feb 09. That's the date when
I did the last restart of the proxy. 
So my proxy seems to have all buffers in memory and does a write to
file ony during ordinarie shutdown.
In case of a crash I might loose up to 2500 checked blocks.
Till now my NT system hasn't crashed often ;-)
