[SQU] squid, diald and sendmail and DNS problems

I have recently configured a Redhat Linux server as proxy server using
Squid( A very old version, 1.3 I guess). To prevent, Sendmail from
doing NS lookups very time it gets a mail and causing the Diald to
bring up the link, it will be ideal if I have only files as the resolver
option for hosts on nsswitch.conf file.

I observed that squid onyl looks at nsswitch.conf and resolver.conf file
onyl at startup or at the time of first lookup. So I think having a
version of nsswitch.conf file with dns option at squid's startup and
then replacing it by "files' only nsswitch.conf. But the results are
erratci. Some times, squid serves pages Ok. But other times, it says
"Could not resolve."

Si there any way , I can make the above ( Inelegant though ! )
arrangement work reliably.

thanks and regards
