Well I had no problems like that, since my shell automattically redirects
STDIN to /dev/null on background jobs. But maybe RunCache should be made
to do this?

Note that this is a common problem on unix machines with shells which
don't do automatic redirection on backgrounding, not specific to squid.
Hence, "rsh -n". (rsh -n, on most unix systems, does an rsh with STDIN
redirected to /dev/null). The rsh man page on my system lists this as a
csh problem.
