That example is only for handling wildcard purges. The one above uses
a direct comparison, which is what you want:
purge("req.url == " req.url);
Your regexp is not doing what you think it's doing either, purging "/"
will purge "/foo/" and "/foo/bar/" as well. You need to anchor it to
the beginning of the string too:
purge("req.url ~ ^" req.url "$");
This should allow wild card purges to work if you need them.
