Yeah, the FreeBSD bug definitely affects all 3.x versions of squid,
possibly even the old 2.7 stuff. Nobody on the FreeBSD side yet seems to
think its a big enough of a regression to patch 10.1-RELEASE. I tried
raising the problem with the squid team, thinking perhaps there is some
workaround they could implement, but there was no response.


For now the consensus is you must patch the 10.1 kernel for the shutdown
behavior to work correctly. And the problem is not unique to the rc script.
