Lets skip this for a moment and follow on down the list...

Can you 'su' to that user?

If you can't, then doubtless that squid will not be able to either!

If this doesn't work, check redhat's sites for patches to 'su' and relevant
utils (which includes gcc and libs), for the alpha platform in particular.
There's bound to be patches to the base CD install, that you probably
should install anyway...

If it does work, then it's definately a code problem (compile or what I
dunno). But it narrows the field down.
