I have also seen this behaviour, in our case it was with squid 1.1.9 on a
Linux 2.0.29 PC.

We have the high & low watermarks set to the same value in the hope that
squid will delete objects as it needs the space rather than loading the
machine heavily while it deletes a few hundred meg every few days. Is
this likely to cause such a problem to occur?
