Squid Weirdest Problem - Timeout

Ok... I can't figure this one out...

I've just upgraded my Squid to 2.5/STABLE11 with yum (previously was using 2.5/STABLE6). And this problem started.

I receive this message on the clients browsers:

The requested URL could not be retrieved


While trying to retrieve the URL: 

The following error was encountered: 

Unable to determine IP address from host name for 
The dnsserver returned: 

This means that: 

 The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL. 
 Check if the address is correct. 
Your cache administrator is

The weirdest thing is that I can browse with the server. And worst... Everything returns to normal when I restart squid service (ex: /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid restart)

So this means it has to be a small glitch. I can't be related to network problems. If it were network problems, by restarting squid, things would continue to go wrong right? Has anyone gone through this?
