 Can you try if it fails in telnet too? You may have to disable the secret
 file to test it.

 Chances are you are running out of cli buffer-space. While you can adjust
 this with cli_buffer, that's obviously not a perfect solution when you
 have 11.5k purges.

 What I do suggest is using "smart bans" and the ban lurker, though, to
 keep the ban list shorter: http://kristianlyng.wordpress.com/2010/07/28
 /smart-bans-with-varnish/ - it's not a solution to the freezing CLI, but
 it might be a work-around (and possibly a performance/utilization boost).
