Since you have the helper from squid-3.2 built stick with that one. It
has a few important bug fixes and the -d flag operating.

If you add -d to the helper command-line parameters in squid.conf it
should record in cache.log what is going on with each session lookup.

I'm kind of suspicious that the helper is having problems in the
background that are not showing up.

Also double-check that the squid.conf are completely identical between
the machines. Security in squid is default-closed so the expected
behaviour with a failing helper should be causing TCP_DENIED constantly
to the client on Ubuntu, not access to the Internet.
