Take a look at the quick_abort option in squid.conf. It should do what you
want here.

E.g., we have "quick_abort 50 90 200", which is supposed to mean that an
aborted ftp-transfer is finished by the proxy, if less than 50 KByte are
yet to be retrieved or the transfer is 90% complete. If more than 200 KByte
remain to be retrieved, the transfer is aborted, unless the 90% criterium
is true. Thats what the documentation says, anyhow.

Have fun.
