"ExpBan: nnn was banned"

We have a newly deployed Varnish installation (v2.0.4 on Debian 5.0 64-bit).
Our hitrate is pretty good (80%+) and the load on the server is consistently
0.00. The cache size is 50G and the TTL is set to basically cache things
indefinitely (it's set to like 1000 years, I think).
I got a complaint from a user that some percentage of his page views seem
too slow to be coming from the cache. I brought up our home page and started
refreshing it over and over. Sure enough, while most of the page views are
in fact getting cached, once every 5 or 6 times, I get a cache miss. When
this happens, varnishlog shows something like this:
32 VCL_call c recv lookup
32 VCL_call c hash hash
* 32 ExpBan c 1607291667 was banned
* 32 VCL_call c miss fetch
I apologize if my google-fu is broken today, but I can't seem to find a
description of what the message above means. I would certainly appreciate
any information (or links) that would help explain this message and how to
prevent the problem going forward.
Thanks and regards,
