"If I change the rule in ANY way after IE has received the first 301 from the web server (for a short-URL redirect for example), it seems that IE isn't even bothering making an HTTP Request to the server, even after restarting Windows!!"
So IIS is not returning a 301 in the logs and even no request get there at all?!
If that is the case this seems to be a IE problem not an IIS one.

... I've re-posted this issue (with a lot more info. and testing results), and am pursuing it in the Windows/IE consumer(?) support channel:
The last reply on that thread links to an
article which states that IE9 will cache a 301 redirect "unless there are headers which forbid it (e.g.
Cache-Control: no-cache)". So, that brings us back to IIS. How do I issue a 301 redirect with a Cache-Control: no-cache header using the IIS URL Rewrite module?
