(and different udp port i hope!)

Squid does not fork during usage, only to run ftpget and unlinkd.

It might be that your OS isn't indicating that unlinkd was run.
I note that mine show it in brackets, meaning that there was no argv[0]
information around.

If you're worried about it, look at the start times of the processes.
Look at the RSS sizes of them. Trace them, see what they're doing.
