SOlaris 2.6, squid 1.1.21 poll() ERESTART errors

        Using Solaris 2.6 with the latest recommended SUN patch set, squid
1.1.21 has a problem when using the poll() system command, as opposed to the
select() system call.

        In comm.c, line 852, the poll() returns ERESTART when you do the do
a 'tail -f <any squid log file>' and interrupt it using CTRL C on the same
machine. It also happens if you run snoop, or ipmon or any such scanner.

        Doing a truss of the process shows the ERESTART error which causes
squid to shut itself down and stop.

        Has anyone else experienced this? Do you have a workaround before I
write one? There are poll() bug fixes in innd and other publically
available software since SUN have had numerous problems and I was going to
adapt one of the fixes used and apply it to squid.
