Well I turned it on because I'm running it on SMP machines. And
unfortunately there's no run-time tunable for async / no async

It might be, but the fix will be: upgrade to squid 2.4, and I'm
still waiting for the squid people to release 2.4-STABLE

Perhaps I should package 2.4-DEVEL for woody in the hope that
2.4-STABLE will appear before woody gets frozen ?

People get the operating system they deserve.
