I increased MAX_URL to 8k. This actually "hardened" the error and made
our squid crash much more often (every 30 minutes or so), with select
returning "Invalid argument". This appeared to happen every time squid
had >256 active FDs.

With the further investigation we determined that we needed to recompile
the kernel with a larger value of FD_SETSIZE, because the code of select
itself allocates "fd_set"s.

I'm optimistic that this will fix the problem - you'll hear if it doesn't.
