squid-3.4.8_1 seems to be leaking memory heavily. Its SIZE and RES are
growing several MB per minute until eventually swapping begins.

Is anyone using it? Have you encountered this problem?

The relevant entries in squid.conf are:

cache_mem 128 MB
cache_dir ufs /webcache/cache 512 16 256
memory_pools off # neither "on" nor "off" have any effect on leaking.

As you see, the memory requirements should be rather modest.

Running on 8.4-RELEASE-p16 i386.
