Ah HA! I'm not alone! This describes the behaviour of my 1.1.14
precisely. It ran fine for a couple of days, and then I got sprays of
"Poor Squid is dead" messages in my e-mail.

I don't think it's related to the sibling configuration:

97/07/23 02:18:23| ERR_CONNECT_FAIL:
FATAL: Received Segment Violation...dying.
97/07/23 02:50:39| storeWriteCleanLog: Starting...

As you can see, it was up and running for about 30 minutes before it
crashed here. The second time it crashed was immediately after startup,
while it was still reading the log file. The third time was immediately
after startup after configuring a sibling (I was testing with teh server) but before having a chance to read the log file,
but that's probably because it didn't write one the previous time it

It died two or three more times after that, all immediately after startup,
and finally it stayed up until the following morning, but that's prbably
because I stopped using it. It crashed again shortly after 9:00am when
the users started using it. It's been up ever since I switched back to

At least this problem is less "in-your-face" than 1.1.12 or 1.1.13's were.
