Yes, this is true, but this is checked each time Squid done fetching the
object, and if it is wron then the object is discarded.

Hmm.. negative caching comes to my mind here. If the requests fails in
the middle then Squid aborts and negatively caches the partial object +
a error message. Perhaps not a great idea for paritally fetched objects.

Maybe storeNegativeCache in storeAbort() should be changed to
    if (mem->e_current_len == 0) {
    } else if(storeRelease(e)) {
