If you are using Sol7, why don't you use pgrep?

        pgrep '(squid)' > $PIDFILE

Still, I am a little wary of overwriting in such a manner. If
your content does not match your running copy, something was
severly wrong (e.g. fs full during restart, ownership problems,
writability problems), and should be investigated. I am using Squid on
Sol7, and the pidfile problem only occurs, if s.t. else got screwed up.
