Comment (by raymondjiii):

 I have found that vcl_fetch() is being called on a PURGE request for an
 object that is a 403.

 If I remove the following from vcl_fetch() then things are fine:

  else if (beresp.ttl <= 0s ||
     beresp.http.Vary == "*") {
     # Mark as "Hit-For-Pass" for the next 2 minutes
     set beresp.ttl = 120s;

 So with the above a 403 object that is purged is called vcl_fetch with the
 above code removed a PURGE request does not call vcl_fetch() on a PURGE
 miss or hit.
