Hi All!

I'm the upstream cache that crashed... Anyone ever see this behavior

Our cache was happily chugging along when all of a sudden for no apparent
reason, the squid process hung. Giving it a HUP got everything going
again, but we aren't sure what caused the problem and how to avoid it in
the future... We are running squid-1.1.15 plus the connect-retry patch on
a linux box.

Anyone have any ideas?
