It's long ago, but adding the following parms to my kernel config
solved the problem for me:

  options         MSGMNB=16384    # special stuff for squid diskd
  options         MSGMNI=41
  options         MSGSEG=2049
  options         MSGSSZ=64
  options         MSGTQL=512

Standard kernel limits for SYSVMSG etc. are too low.
