This looks a lot like miss_access denials.

Duane, is limiting miss_access?

miss_access in it's current form does not work well. Properly configured
peers should have miss_access, or they will get "Access denied" from
time to time. miss_access can be used to punish peers that mis-configure
you as a parent without a prior agreement.

I think there is plans to change Squid to handle miss_access in a proper
way, but to my knowledge none of the current releases (including
1.2beta) can handle miss_access without failing from time to time due to
race conditions and ICP limitations.
