Darn. Okay that hinders testing a bit.

The groups are attached to credentials which are attached to the TCP
connection (TTL only as long as the connection is open) and a token
replay cache for up to authenticate_ttl directive time (default 1 hour).

Setting that TTL to something very short, eg:

  authenticate_ttl 10 seconds

... and disabling connection keep-alive:

  client_persistent_connections off

... should work around the cache for testing. At least on HTTP traffic.
HTTPS traffic goes through the proxy as a single tunnel request - so the
entire HTTPS session is just one request/response pair to Squid.
