I see. The previous cache_mem setting used to be 1GB, but I reduced it
since squid's own memory usage was getting, again, over 1.3GB (at which
point, all other applications suffer as there is no room for anything
else!), so, clearly, if the maximum_object_size_in_memory is reduced,
then I suppose squid's memory footprint will have to go down too, which
makes the cache_mem option a bit useless.
