Cache usage (varnishstat) in persitent mode (2.1.5)

Hi all,

I am using varnish 2.1.5 and switched to persistent mode for testing 

Usually I am monitoring cache usage by calling varnishstat frequently 
(cron job)
and I save the values for sm_balloc and sm_bfree in a rrdtool db file.

After switching from -s file to -s persistent it seems that these values 
aren't fed
with reasonable values any more (staying at zero).

Is this still normal for 2.1.5 or am I doing it wrong?  ^^

Any advice would be great. Thanks.
