[squid-users] squid, winbind authentication (ntlm) caching problems

Hello List,
I have a problem with squid 2.5.stable2 and the caching of
authentication data. I use winbind and wb_group.pl to authenticate to a
ntlm-compatible Active Directory Server.
This works fine, only members of a certain group may access the
internet. When a new user is added to the Active Directory Group, it is
almost immediately recognized by squid,
But not when it is deleted! it may take up to four days, until this user
is blocked from accessing the internet. Only a restart of squid can
change this. Then automatically all the new data is used.
Note that wb_group.pl does (like wbinfo) _always_ report the correct
data - but squid does seem to cache the user data somewhere.
Thanks in advance,

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
