I actually had three bans. And now I'm really confused: I needed to purge a few pages from the cache, so I did

ban.url /da/index.html

and a couple other in varnishadm. I thought this would purge the url from the cache. It did, but why do they appear when I issue a ban.list? I thought it was a one-time purge command, not a list that will forever ban those urls from entering the cache. How do I purge a url once from the cache using varnishadm?

I've restarted varnish to remove the bans (is there any other way?). I'll check whether the lurker starts ... lurking? again
