I don't know if anyone has contacted you on this yet. I had a similar
problem with my home machine. On that I was running Stampede 0.89
( with Squid 2.4.STABLE3 compiled with pgcc
( "gcc version pgcc- 20001224
(release)". Every once in a while Squid would inexplicably stop
responding. I suspect the pgcc I was using to compile it and/or my
pgcc-compiled kernel. I still do not know exactly what caused the
problem. If I were you I'd recompile Squid with egcs on your Slackware
system and perhaps even resort to gdb'ing the Squid that is executing.
 Also you might try strace-ing or ltrace-ing that running Squid after it
hangs. Another possibility is you might try utilizing the 'Squid
Support Services' ( I
am sure they would be more than happy to help, and you'd most likely be
supporting open-source development that way.
