Does Squid send out requests on behalf of it's clients from port 3128 to port 80 and thus have returning traffic from 80 to 3128?  I know this is not the situation where clients connect to Squid, but rather when Squid connects to the web servers.  Seeing as how this rule is running on eth1, the internal LAN interface, this is irrelevant.
