How is "forcing an application that does not utilize semaphores to use
sem.* as a filename prefix" is not a bug is beyond me, but this snap
issue classification (bug, feature, problem, whatever) is not important
for Squid. Once you make the filename prefix configurable, any prefix
would work, including the weird one that snap apparently insists on.
