You mean you get files named /usr/local/squid/cache/log.0 and so on, but
/usr/local/squid/logs/*.log grow without bounds? No, that's not at all
normal. It should be the other way around.

Did you check /usr/local/squid/logs/cache.log for any messages dated around
the time you sent SIGUSR1 to squid?
