After more testing, I've determined that squid isn't the problem.
What's happening is that after running a while, the system stops being
able to contact itself on any port -- I can't even telnet to, for example. I can still contact the machine from outside,
so it only seems to have a problem talking to itself. I'm guessing
that squid talks to its dnsservers and stuff through local sockets,
and that's where the problem is occuring. I don't have an answer yet,
but I at least have an idea where to look now. :-)
