Sorry, mommy... :-p

Yes, I've run into cases where screwing up hostnames can cause fun 
problems.  In the times I've set up Squid, though, it usually was more 
tolerant of that error or at least have errors logged to the logs Squid 
keeps that would point out DNS/hostname-related errors, or at least 
setting it to your own host IP seemed to work.

I've never had it run into a problem where it killed X, though (squid, 
that is).
