Correct. Which is why that and many of the other minor issues are still
unfixed. It just means some potentially serious (but very rare) security
bugs are never visible so nobody worries about them. Making these things
visible is the goal to get a better assessment of whether they are as
rare as we think. Breaking the build (-Werror) is still enabled in order
to get problem reports from the very many environments which Squid is
required to run in which we are not even aware exist.

That is on par with just about all the major distros unfortunately. I
suspect we are going to see a lot of them having to skip 3.2 releases

:-( it is.

Hmm. I have IPv6-enabled mailserver some people cannot get to
periodically, due mostly to PMTUD breakage somewhere in the middle.
