We run a daily script every night that send a kill USR1 to squid, which
seems to make squid rotate the log files correctly (running version 1.1.6)
The only thing I've noticed recently is that after rotating, the running
squid terminates and RunCache then starts up a new one. I haven't had time
yet to find out if this is normal behaviour.
