It is good idea to use cachemgr's info and we would like to do
this but unfortunalty squid always dies with the following
lines in cache.log:

97/03/19 16:41:34| CACHEMGR: requesting 'info'
FATAL: Received Segment Violation...dying.

Exept for this everything else works fine. Any ideas?
We use squid-1.1.6 on UnixWare 2.1.1
