too many Squid authentication windows

Hi community,
I have squid proxy authenticating Internet users with LDAP. It's working well. But I have problem when I authenticate to squid proxy to login to Yahoo Messenger. Each time, I login to YM application, the squid proxy popups many authentication windows. These confuse users when they you YM. I checked in squid access log and see that: when users use YM application, the application requests the following links:
With each link, squid requires one authentication window. Do you have any ways to squid require only one authentication window when users use YM?

Many thanks for regarding,

celeron, please don't resurrect dead threads. I've moved your post to a thread of its own.
