cache_mem and squid memory usage correlation

  I'm running squid-1.1.5 on BSD/OS 2.1 and I have a question about
the cache_mem parameter. No matter how low I set this parameter,
squid's memory usage seems to grow by about 4K for each new request
and finally levels out after it reaches a VSZ of 22MB.

  This parameter seems to have absolutely no effect. Am I missing
something here, or is this a bug ?
