Just remove some files in the cache subdirectories. But keep the

Squid will be a little upset if there is a cache hit on a file you have
removed but it automatically recovers.

But I am still not convinced your problem is the cache growing beyond the
cache_dir size. If there was such problems in 2.5.STABLE1 I am pretty sure
