Don't think so. The above is only a comment. You have another cache_dir
line somewhere which is not commented, or your Squid is not using the
squid.conf file you think it is.

After installation I always recommend to clean squid.conf from any

cat squid.conf | awk '/^[a-z]/ {print}' >squid.conf.clean

[verify that squid.conf.clean looks OK, and add back any comments needed
to claify why you have certain settings]

mv squid.conf.clean squid.conf

It is always easier maintain 1/2 page of configuration directives, than
40 pages with configuration directives mixed with lots of documentation
which might be for some older software release....
