| bug or feature? With the new version, my cache file gets shrunk. I made

|     -s file,/var/cache/varnish/store.bin
| which worked as expected with older releases.

I would guess at you running into us using 50% of the available space on
the file system by default.  If we don't use the existing size, I'd
argue it's a bug, so please file one.
