ftpget failing (squid 1.1.10)

Hello squidders,

I have a problem with ftpget from 1.1.10, and was wondering if anyone else
has seen or dealt with it.

Our environment is squid 1.1.10, running on Solaris 2.5.1. We use "socks 5
beta 0.17.2 exportable" to talk through our firewall bastion host. squid is
started using stock standard RunCache with the only modification being a
call to socks to run squid:
      /usr/local/bin/runsocks squid -sY $conf >> $logdir/squid.out 2>&1

This setup worked with squid 1.1.1 previously, but we had to upgrade as it
was getting confused with socks (as well as being well overdue).

The problem is that I start an ftp session through Netscape 3.0, and get
this error back from squid:
The following error was encountered:
     Connection Failed
The system returned:
    (125) Address already in use
This means that:
    The remote site or server may be down. Please try again soon.

After a bit of digging around, and running with some debugging, I find that
the address already in use is not at the remote site, but the TCP port that
ftpget is using!

From cache.log, with "debug_options ALL,1 38,9 50,9 9,9 4,9 26,9"

# ps -ef | grep ftpget
    root 24392 24255 1 14:26:40 pts/0 0:00 grep ftpget
www-prox 21547 14469 0 10:45:14 ? 0:00 /usr/local/squid/bin/ftpget
 -S 60561

# ./lsof -iTCP:60561
ftpget 21547 www-prox 3u inet 0xff563ce0 0t0 TCP

The frustrating thing is that maybe one in 10 or 20 attempts will actually
work, and then it will all fail again.

I realise we have a non-standard setup, but maybe someone might have seen
this before?
