Do you have a cache dns server running on your system, if not
start one add it to the resolve.conf pluse the upstream dns servers
then ## out the enable dns in the ppp.conf (you'll lose the ref to yours
in the resolv.conf each time you  reconnect if you don't).

SOunds to me squid is looking for a dns server that is not there, and waits for a time
