I am getting the same thing now and then from my parent servers, both on
the same ether at the end of my dialup connection:

I am running Squid 1.1.9 on Redhat linux 2.0.29 (PCI 686-150 16mbram 32swap)

The 2 proxy servers (running Squid 1.1.9 also) are sitting behind another
machine that load shares and so on with the use of an auto proxy, but i
