Connection Timed out problem

We had a strange problem with Squid (squid 1.NOVM14 on Digital Unix
3.2C) this morning.

Connections to (our site's web server) suddenly
failed - the reason give by Squid on the error page was "(60) Connection
timed out". However connecting to throught our CERN
proxy (which runs on the same host as Squid) was fine as was pinging from the Squid host.

Also even stranger connections to (our domain is defined as
both and in our DNS) through Squid were fine.

The Squid logs did not show the reason for the problem, only
ERR_CONNECT_FAIL messages for

Restarting Squid cleared the problem, but has anyone else seen this happen?
