As Stein-Ove writes, yes it's different because it's a Squid 2.6

It was not on the purgelist yesterday, but that seldom is a problem since
the Expire time is seldom or never actually honored by Squid (It refreshes
more often that whats set in Expires and in the config file). :) So the
front editors will not notice it as a "old" frontpage. Also cache3 is
handeling less traffic than Varnish, so it's hit more seldom.
That explains why the Varnish page was more visible as not honoring the
purge the editors sent.
