It is fixed in Squid-2.4, and will work in Squid-2.3 if you use the FS
type you built Squid for. There is no reason to have Squid built with
--enable-async-io if you only use the "ufs" type store.

I don't expect a patch for Squid-2.3 to be released for this minor
issue. If you do not want to use the "aufs" store, then rebuild your
Squid without --enable-async-io.
