According to an article in the list:

(Re: Growing RAM usage by SQUID from John Sloan <>)

"Use GNU malloc - you won't have mallinfo() and friends, but it'll be much

faster and won't leak memory (well, not as much, anyway... did we finally
catch the last of the leaks?)"

mallinfo() does not exist in the GNU malloc library. So there must be a
bug in squid which lead to try using mallinfo() even if you use the GNU
library when called for the cache_object 'info' -> immediate crash.
