When your cache gets bigger, stopping and starting Squid means that it will
take around 4 hours to load in the metadata (load average of 1). The cache
is also visibly slow during this time.

It's very frustrating when other people reboot the proxy servers, saying "oh,
it seemed a bit slow, but it didn't help, now it's even slower". aargh.
