Sounds like a Squid bug to me. There were several bugs related to
handing final step1 configurations because SslBump developers often did
not test them when modifying other SslBump aspects. Some of those bugs
still remain. This could be one of them.

I suggest filing a Squid bug report with a single-transaction ALL,9
cache.log attached.

Good luck,
