Squid and glibc

        Has anyone had any success with glibc based system and Squid? I
noticed the recent "effective_user doesn't work" postings which are on
RedHat 4.2 Linux on an Alpha system (which has glibc from memory). Red
Hat 5.0 is standardized on glibc, and now exhibits the same error message
that you should not run it as root.
        I'm hardly a glibc road warrior, and I notice that seteuid and
related features in glibc are undocumented :(
        A work around is to run Squid as UID 'cache' (or whatever you use),
it has a few complaints but it still works - as long as it's on a port
above 1024.
