Setting Proxy Server cache_dir to null breaks proxy server

When I set the cache_dir to null in Proxy Server:Cache Management, the proxy server no longer starts. I googled around a bit and found this from the Squid FAQ.
Can I make Squid proxy only, without caching anything?
Sure, there are few things you can do.
You can use the cache access list to make Squid never cache any response:
cache deny all
With Squid-2.7, Squid-3.1 and later you can also remove all 'cache_dir' options from your squid.conf to avoid having a cache directory.
**With Squid-2.4, 2.5, 2.6, and 3.0 you need to use the "null" storage module:
cache_dir null /tmp**
It's not big deal–I just set it to a very small cache size--but the null option probably should be there if all it does is break squid :)
This should be fixed now. I just committed an update to correct the cache_dir line when null is selected. I didn't bump the version number though. Just reinstall the pkg and it should be fine.
