We are using 1.0.4, so this might have been fixed in the latest releas. 
I have not seen any mention of it though.

The problem is this:
Varnish receives a request that triggers an url purge regexp and the 
object is consequently banned. If the same object has already expired, 
but not yet been deleted, the child process restarts itself.

I don't the inner workings in play here, but this is the chain of events 
I get from the logs at least.

Please let me know if I have misunderstood something here.
