  please pardon the late reply. 
  if you're using diskd method of squid, that might be the reason
  for the extra activity.  diskd makes your load # higher and might
  be doing that too, but it isn't making your system slower - i think
  it is just a characteristic of how diskd works.

  if you're not using diskd... i dunno.  ps axl or top and look and
  see if you can visually discover what is making the "issue".  might
  be nothing to worry about ( b isn't increasing... afaik, that is
  what would suck, but a constant # with every service running and
  functioning as far as you can tell, that might not be a big deal )
