Comment (by ioppermann):

 Same for me. Have a varnish3 with malloc,128M which can store ~14k
 objects. With varnish4 it can only store ~8k objects with malloc,1G.
 varnish4 is nuking objects because it thinks memory is full, but top tells
 me that only ~300M are effectively used. Now I reduced fetch_chunksize to
 8k and it's geting better. However, this seems to be a very strange
 handling of chunked content.
