Since you're loading from a remote server, if your requests are http
requests, say in the form of "
http://my.server.com/getData.php?param1=value&param2=value"  can you tack
on a "&requestrefresh=(the seconds)" .. In this way, each hit will always
be new and any weird caching issues should be sidestepped.

How are you requesting the lists?  get URL "address to url", load, or
post?  You should check for errors on each request of course, and log them
if possible. Check the result of course, also liburlerrordata.

Since its 2 machines on the same network, the first idea might solve it, if
there is a munged cache between them and the remote server.
