Since it seems that due to a bug in the version of OpenLayers used on 
the site, all layers are always loaded, I would suggest that you switch 
to using *either* dev *or* one of the two proxies. The current setup 
leads to each tile being requested from dev up to three times (once 
directly, once by each proxy if they don't have it yet), so this is 
surely worse than it was before.

The idea of using proxies is a good one and as soon as the OL bug is 
fixed (SDE said he will look into that) we should do it, but at the 
moment it seems to make things worse for the dev server.
