What's happening here is a denial for *reading* /var/run/squid.pid,
which is of type var_run_t. Now in Fedora 11 this file should be
labelled squid_var_run_t, and that's what it is labelled on two Fedora
11 boxes freshly installed here. It seems there's a labelling problem
on your system. Can you post the output of "ls -lZa /var/run"? Is your
system a fresh install or an upgrade?
