Hi Jack,

Can't comment specifically on these, but your varnish version is very old.
1.1.2 is good and stable for us, and -trunk is apparently pretty stable,

it's 'url.purge' in 1.1.2, not sure about your version.

It's important to know/remember that the vcl you write does not *replace*
the default vcl, it just runs first, unless you specifically return a
different action (eg, lookup, pass, etc). The cookie stuff you hashed out
will still run in the default vcl afterward with your current setup. See:
...for more information on this (be aware the default presented there is
probably not correct for your current version).

You're welcome ;)
