Something is very wrong. "store_id_rewrite" does not exist as either a
binary or directive name ins Squid.

The helper name is storeid_file_rewrite. We cannot be any more specific
than that because ever single OS places the binaries in different
locations. It is up to you as sysadmin to know where your OS places
binaries, and whether there is diffeence between 32-bit or 64-bit or
other locations.

That is all documented in the database wiki page, which is linked in
multiple places from teh StoreID wiki page you were using.

It should accept whitespace, not TAB specifically. As documented in "The
Pattern Syntax"
