As long as the purge thread is active and your bans only rely on obj.*
(and not req.*), Varnish will try to keep it under control by actively
checking bans against objects.

As an alternative, you can use the nuke support Per's mail refers to.
That is more suitable for getting rid of single objects rather than,
say, a whole hierarchy.
