Yes, Squid should evict old certificates in order to cache the new ones
while maintaining the total cache size at or below the configured 4MB level.

The above numbers do not matter to Squid. They should correlate with
Squid estimate of the database size, but to know how many bytes Squid
actually thinks the certificate database is using, do this instead:

  $ cat size
