Alright, thanks for the hint.

My proxy and clients definitely have the same DNS server (I removed the secondary and tertiary ones to make totally sure) but the results definitely aren’t matching 99% of the time. Probably more like 90%.

Perhaps it’s 'cause my clients are caching records locally or something? It does seem to improve as the day progresses, after joining the intercepted wifi network in the morning.

Super annoying though trying to post a comment on GitHub or something and it just hangs.
