The icap patch for squid has 1-2 known bugs which in some cases causes
crashes to squid.

What do you think about squid3? In the past many OS distributions
included squid3 (with the notice that it is pre-release).
It has a good icap client, with support for ftp protocol and supports
preview in request modification (squid2-icap does not).
I think that the new pre-release will take less than a month to released.
