If you're app isn't sending appropriate cache headers, then you're  
stuffed whatever you're using - I don't think that changing the cache  
is going to help here - the default varnish config won't cache things  
with a cookie, but that still won't help you for users who may be  
behind a proxy/cache themselves..

You need to fix the cache headers your app is sending, this is the  
only correct solution.
