It's the same problem I found with SSL downloads and long files. It has
been fixed in 1.1.12:

    Changes to squid-1.1.12 (July 5, 1997):

          - Added missing calls to reset socket timeouts for SSL
            and passthrough requests.

I have not tested it yet but the patch I got from Duane some days ago
looked OK.
