I had the same problem with a similar version of Squid a couple of weeks
ago. The solution was to upgrade to a more recent version of Squid (I'm
currently running 1.0.12).

What had happened was, apparently, that the routines that were supposed to
take care of this particular problem were not called often enough in
earlier versions of Squid.
