We installed phkmalloc on the machine - which improved the memory
"leakage" (actually fragmentation I imagine). Squid would still run out
of memory, but that was fixed by increasing the datasize hard limit above

Our squid has now been up since Tuesday (now Friday) and has served
1,057,894 requests.

So thanks all for the hints.
