Comment(by olau):

 Hah. :) Gave me a good laugh. You admit it's a bug, it's simple enough to
 fix, right? Two lines of default VCL? But you won't do it? Why not? I
 still don't understand. When we "discussed" this on the mailing list, I
 got 4 emails evading the subject, telling me that Varnish is not covered
 by the RFC, which I only quoted to try to explain why the default
 behaviour came as a surprise.

 I should perhaps add that the reason you haven't been flooded with bug
 reports could be that what at least used to be a prominently featured
 introduction in the wiki showed how to fix the bug yourself in VCL (I
 missed this since I had been using Varnish before that intro).

 Anyway, if you just don't think it's worth fixing, feel free to ignore me.
 I've abandoned Varnish some time ago anyway, when it became clear you are
 not targeting smaller shops.
