A empty hierarchy_stoplist.. Comment out hierarchy_stoplist in
squid.conf. The wording in squid.conf is that the default squid.conf is
to go direct on cgi-bin or ?, not that the default is built into Squid.

However, Squid always tries to go direct on requests that is defined as
uncacheable in HTTP. This is for example POST requests. Squid only uses
a parent for such requests if enforced by inside_firewall (or
never_direct in 1.2).
