I think I answered the e-mail at the time. The problem is the way squid
scans filedescriptors. It would be possible to make squid behave "better",
for example alternating through a set of different scanning orders. Only
delay pools are affected, and the impact is relatively minor in the real
world, so I haven't looked into it very far. I did suggest some simple changes
which could be made but didn't work on them yet. I think this will probably
be a 2.3 thing (since most likely nobody else will work on it, and I'm rather
busy at the moment) - I'll try and make a patch within the next 3 to 6 months.
