I'm seeing the same problem as in a previous post here by Carey Nairn.

I however did not upgrade, but did a clean install of 2.2.5 then cvsup'd
to 2.2.5-stable.

I am running Squid-1.1.18 and I get the same thing. Apparantly it looks
like FreeBSD 2.2.5 including -stable has a broken gethostbyname(). I am
wondering if there are any fixes for this or if anyone else has the same
problem and knows a work around.

I have squid running as "nobody" and Apache running as "nobody", but I'm
not sure if that makes a difference.
