Does sound like a bug. We will need to know the actual release number of
Squid you are using.

Assuming you do have the latest package, that still leaves Etch as
3.0.PRE5 and Lenny as one of 3.0.STABLE8, 3.0.STABLE19 or 3.1.3-2
depending on the repository used.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.3
