No peers to query and the host is beyond your firewall (fwd)

The system: Squid 1.1.17; Linux 2.0.32; 256Mb; 2Gb hard disc.

The problem: Occasionally, the system will suddenly begin reporting
ERR_CANNOT_FETCHes, with the recorded error that:

protoCantFetchObject: FD xx No peers to query and the host is beyond your

[I use a different box to check the firewall's still alive - it always

This continues for a couple of minutes, and then reverts to its normal,
functioning, state. This is a recent bug; the cache in question has run
for months without any problems, and nothing on the box has changed (to my
knowledge) during that time.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
