I wasn't able to reproduce the behaviour, but here's my 2 cents all the same.

I use Opera as my main browser, and I'm a big fan, but there is definitely 
a problem regarding page caching. My ISP uses a php script for server 
administration, but I can not use Opera to do the administration because it 
insists on loading pages from the cache even after I make changes. Even if 
I reload after making a change, Opera reloads the introductory page 
(presumably because the page I've made the changes on is actually just the 
same file with some variables included), and then when I go back to the 
page on which I've made changes, it loads the page from the cache again.

Not 100% sure that this is the same problem, but I wouldn't be surprised if 
it's related.
