I have not bothered with the limits since only traffic going to just 3
sites is redirected to this proxy (see Issue 389 on the tracker), so the
traffic should not have caused such load. But a week ago I could
somehow open the port for the whole world.

There was no ACL and other limits set, since I thought only people
from my trusted subnet could access it. That means that 10^5 or more
people from the whole world were *using* that proxy and this is a big
kudos to the OS because it could actually _handle_ the situation which
has been going on for a week or so. I only noticed some hangups that
took 10 minutes.

Funny thing is that it started about the same time I upgraded the box
to 1_10_RELEASE and I suspected there was a problem with the OS.

Thanks again for your hints, Matt, and sorry for the noise.
