thanks for all the hints so far. Allow one further question:
The problem I described occured after I upgraded my kernel (and nothing)
else from 2.0.21 to 2.0.21. Could it be that something regarding libc was
changed when updating the kernel? Unfortunately, installing the old kernel
didn't solve the problem. Right now, I can't even compile the last beta of
Squid 1.1. Do I have to re-install my whole linux?

Thanks, ULf
