[squid-users] Bandwidth shapping is lost when 'squid -k reconfigure' is executed

Hi squid users,

I'm using delay pools to shape the bandwidth from some ip addresses.

If a user starts to download some file from Internet, its download
falls into the shapping,
i.e., the delay pools is working as expected.

Whenever a 'squid -k reconfigure' is executed during the users's download, the
shapping is lost, i.e., the download begins to download in full speed.

Here is my delay pools in squid.conf:

delay_pools 1
delay_class 1 2
delay_parameters 1 -1/-1 8000/8000
acl pool_1_acl src 192.168.8.100 10.10.10.0/255.255.255.0
delay_access 1 allow pool_1_acl
delay_access 1 deny all

I'm using an old version of squid cache, as you can see in the output
of the command
'squid -v':

Squid Cache: Version 2.5.STABLE12-20060202
configure options: --prefix=/usr --exec_prefix=/usr --enable-snmp
--sysconfdir=/etc/squid
--enable-icmp --enable-underscores --datadir=/etc/squid --enable-linux-netfilter
--enable-auth=ntlm,basic --enable-ssl --enable-delay-pools

I'd like to know if this situation is normal or if it was a bug
corrected in newer versions
of squid cache.

Thanks in advance.

Murilo.
