No, only strange thing is:
2001/01/22 00:00:25| accessLogRotate: Rotating
2001/01/22 03:48:01| Starting Squid Cache version 2.3.STABLE4 for
NOTE: the times. Squid should not have rebooted.

and then:
2001/01/22 03:48:14| diskHandleWrite: FD 5: disk write error: (28) No
space left on device
FATAL: Write failure -- check your disk space and cache.log
Squid Cache (Version 2.3.STABLE4): Terminated abnormally.

I believe this due to the core being writen in the cache_dir and running
out of space.

OK thanks... I'll try that.

BTW the core seems to happen infrequently. Ie. I got one on the 22, 23
this month but one before that was about a month ago late Dec.
