Can't Kill Squid Process

I have a Redhat Linux 7.1 system running kernel 2.4.18-26.7 under ext2
type file system.

I am running Version 3.0-PRE3-20030924 with '--enable-async-io'
'--enable-basic-auth-helpers=NCSA' switches set at compile.

I also have squidGuard-1.2.0 setup as a redirector.

It runs fine for about a week normally, but then starts corrupting
memory and gets to a point where I can't even kill the squid process.
That is, '/etc/rc.d/init.d/squid stop' and 'kill -s 9' on the squid pid
do not kill the process.

I have to reboot my system to kill squid, but when I reboot, I always
have to run e2fsck to fix corrputed inodes and data blocks.

Does anyone know what might be going on here?
