varnish *slowing* down site, any ideas?

Hey there,

We have a lot of websites (perhaps 15-20) running on apache, behind a
varnish cache.

One of our sites seems to experience random slowdowns when varnish is
enabled. It will take between 5-20 seconds to load, fairly frequently. Our
other sites all seem unaffected.

When I disable varnish and have apache listen on port 80, the problem
disappears entirely.

Any thoughts?

Here's our vcl.conf if it helps:
