Hmm.. you have a point there. I too have noticed this when you mention

I think it may be a unwanted sideeffect of related bugfix for a long
standing bug where Squid sometimes forgot it shouldn't be running as
root. (the getpwnam() ChangeLog entry)

I'll try to get it cleaned up for Squid-2.4 to not bother with
userid/groupid if it isn't started as root.
