I spent a fair amount of hours spent digging into this.

When doing manual install and then remove on wheezy, I wasn't able to
see the behaviour. Is this what you are seeing as well?

Yet our wheezy build servers, where packages are installed/uninstalled
by sbuild, got into this state.

I relayed the patch to Stig (debian varnish maint.) and asked for
feedback. If you have any further insights, I'm happy to listen.
