Don't do this.

'dmesg' would inform you too that squid make a segfault?

I already report this problem in this ml and in Debian bug report (sorry
I do not remember # but it is easy to find back).

The problem was in fact due to a bad update of libpam-modules and a modification
in /etc/security/limits.conf which didn't occurs by default. You would found
tree line:
*       hard    core      0
*       hard    rss       5000
*       hard    nproc     20

which you can remove (what the update should do if you answer Y at this time)

Now, you have to quit completely your loging; login again and you should
now be able to use squid.
