Comment (by anders):

 Checking this problem more closely, I want to comment on a few things:

 - it seems to occur against one backend at a time only. I have two purge
 checks in my monitoring setups, which checks purge for different backends,
 and it's only one of them that fails.

 - it can take up to half an hour before the problem goes over by itself.

 In any case, I still believe this is a problem with Varnish. It should not
 send PURGE requests to the backend at all. I did not post my complete VCL
 here because it is getting big and complicated. I'll send it to the
 developer that will look at the problem, if necessary.
