No worries, reading my previous email I must say that remark doesn't
look nice. I wrote it in a rush like I often do on this list.

There's no ordering guarantee in the varnishlog output, although they
should likely be ordered since they share the same hash. You'd need to
check the Timestamp records to get a grasp of chronology.

If it's a bug, it might be one of those hard to reproduce...

Amazingly enough I never looked at the logs of a purge, maybe ExpKill
could give us a VXID to then check against the hit. If only SomeoneElse(tm)
could spare me the time and look at it themselves and tell us (wink wink=).
