I'm running squid on cygwin64 under Windows 7. All packages on my system are at the latest versions.

After upgrading the cygwin package to 1.7.26-1, I started getting errors in squid which causes it to abort. Rolling the cygwin package back to 1.7.25-1 resolves the issue. Here are the errors in squid's cache.log:
