I've put a tarball of Valgrind logfiles here:

This is the output after starting valgrind/varnish like this:

valgrind -v --leak-check=full --trace-children=yes --num-callers=30
--time-stamp=yes --log-file=/tmp/valgrind-5.varnish
/usr/local/varnish/sbin/varnishd -a -h classic -f
/etc/varnish/vcl.conf -T -t 60 -w 1,1,60 -s

...and then killing the parent process after 20-ish hours.  The Varnish
in question was version 1.0.3 from SVN with the patch I got from DES

It seems the follow-children followed the compilation of the VCL file as
well; I guess valgrind-5.varnish.27584 is the most interesting file.

I hope this is useful.  I don't have a lot of experience with Valgrind,
so if there are any options I should (or shouldn't) have used, please
let me know.
