IPv6 has nothing to do with it AFAICS. Apparently the user account
starting Squid just dont have permission to open listening sockets, or
at least ones with randomly OS-assigned port.
To send send receive DNS packets Squid requires a UDP listening port
opened. But for security the OS is left to assign a random port number.
