I have just committed a change to make sure we get the error messages
from the child in this case.

If you can reproduce it I'm very interested in what it said.

I'm not so sure.

But regarding the multiple-instance thing:

I think my inclination is that each instance of varnish gets a
user chosen "identifier".  The only requirement I have is that
it can be part of a filename (ie: no '/' etc).

You will of course have to specify that identifier to all programs
that need access to the shared memory.

Is that workable ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
