"Usually misconfiguration leads to memory overhead."

This may be true, but if you look in the list archives a few months
ago I basically chased my tail in circles and nobody could tell me
what I was doing wrong and so many of the docs are so old that they're
worse then useless, they seem to suggest the wrong thing.

It was literally leaking GB's worth of RAM.  I even disabled all
caching and process sizes were growing into the GB's.  Turn off
ssl-bump and the leak went away.

This is what I was using:

http_port 10.0.0.1:3128 ssl-bump generate-host-certificates=on
dynamic_cert_mem_cache_size=400MB cert=/etc/squid/ssl_cert/myCA.pem
sslflags=NO_DEFAULT_CA
http_port localhost:3128
ssl_bump bump all

sslcrtd_program /usr/lib64/squid/ssl_crtd -s /var/lib/squid/ssl_db -M 4MB
sslcrtd_children 32 startup=2 idle=2
sslproxy_session_cache_size 100 MB
sslproxy_cert_error allow all
sslproxy_flags DONT_VERIFY_PEER

This was on a machine (EC2 VM) with 14GB of RAM.
