This kind of length sounds like the purge connections are timing out and 
failing or something. Can you provide your squid-related options from 
LocalSettings.php? Are you using the TCP purging or HTCP over UDP? Can 
you confirm that you can connect to the squid and send purge requests?

When using the normal TCP/HTTP purges, the system will try to connect to 
the boxes in $wgSquidServers to issue HTTP purge requests. You can 
manually try one in telnet:

$ telnet foo 80
PURGE http://myserver/some/page HTTP/1.0

or such.
