From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
If you have to do a lot of restarts/reloads of squid (like changing the 
configuration on the fly for a network appliance) the current initscript 
will run multiple copies of squid due it's improper pidfile handling. 
Those extra instances will fail with "Cannot open HTTP port" or "No copy 
running". Patch supplied.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./squid restart ; ./squid restart ; ./squid restart
