Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 859393
squid does not start after a clean install (if /var/spool/squid is empty)

Bug 747103 implemented cache_swap.sh to pre-create squid cache dirs before the actual daemon start. It worked for a while, but somewhere between F16 and F17 systemd started blocking forking processes in ExecStartPre, which broke the script, since for some reason squid even with "-z" forks itself by default.
One possible solution is to pass "-N" option to squid in cache_swap.sh. It will not fork and systemd will allow it to do its work.
