I didn't actually install squid and junkbuster on our system, a friend did,
but what I see happening is junkbuster running on port 8128, and a line in
squid.conf that says:
http_port 8128

And the browsers are set to port 3128.

So it looks to me like, on my system, squid communicates with junkbuster,
and junkbuster with the site. I guess :-) I do know that here, the
ijbcookie file definitely has control over cookies. Because squid isn't
set to touch them, and the ijbcookie file is definitely doing it's job, as
I have a number of entires in there and everything works consistently.
