#808: Assert crash on load testing

Comment(by diego):

 Not a hardware issue. Final finding and this is a compile/install/-v
 version confusion issue.

 Using lsof on the running varnishd I was able to track down the problem.

 On those 2 servers that had issues they had out-dated (dated oct,2010)
 varnishd binary in the .libs folder within /usr/local/sbin. I did not even
 realize the compiled varnishd is just a link to load .libs/varnishd.

 Make install never works for me due to "rst2man" dependency so I just
 opted to manually copy the binary over to /usr/local/sbin not realizing
 the real binary is in the .libs folder.

 After removing those old binaries and copying over new ones, the asserts
 went away.

 But why is "varnishd -V" showing the current build version when it might
 be linked to the old binary?
