What is particularly wrong with \.jpe?g$ ?

Assuming squid uses standard regexps...

\. - a dot. :)
e? - zero or one e's.
$ - end of line.

From regexp(6):

       The REP operators match zero or more (*), one or more (+),
       zero or one (?), instances respectively of the preceding
       regular expression e2.

Remember, unix is one of the best documented systems you will find -
read the manual pages! (of course, if squid has its own flavour of
regexps, this is wrong:)
