Comment (by lkarsten):

 Thanks for reporting this.

 Scripts for Varnish 4.1 does now return an error code on a failing reload,
 and will write the error description to stdout/stderr.

 Varnish 3 is end of life and will not get any updates.

 Leaving this open until we figure out if we should apply this to 4.0 as
