With stock 10.4.6 Safari, I'm getting an alert saying "200" every 8-9 seconds.
The reason is that NSURLConnection catches the 304 response and translates it
into a 200 one (with a full cached response body and other headers, of course).

I am getting exactly the same results from Mac Firefox 1.5.

If you issue a conditional request the response for which is not cached, the
behavior is incorrect, see bug 7385. However, normally caching is performed
automatically and transparently, so you needn't specify the conditional headers
at all.

So, this doesn't look like a bug to me.
