I have the same problem with squid-1.0.18 under FreeBSD-2.1 when our single
communication line becomes broken.
If I use squid without "inside_firewall" this leads to DIRECT requests
when line alives instead of requests to parent.
With "inside_firewall" this leads to impossibility of getting information.
