autentication problems

I'm trying to put up authentication for squid, so i can log the real
user, and not the machine, that is browsing the net.
I followed th instructions in squids FAQ (19.6 How do I configure PROXY
autehentication in squid-2), added the ACL and HTTP_ACCES lines as
informed in the FAQ:

acl users_allowed proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow users_allowed

the idea is to allow acces to everybody, but with users identified.

The autentication process via ncsa_auth, worked fine, but squid didnt
let me browse any pages, giving acces denied error

but if i modify the above ACL to look like this:

acl users_allowed proxy_auth patricio
http_access allow users_allowed

and log as patricio, it works fine. But is not viable to list all user
in the acl line, due to its growht,
can anyone help me debug this Squid behavior.
