If you're using LRU expiry, the "LRU reference age" may well
plummet and be erratic for a while. This is because the objects get
queued in the order they are found on the disk. It will eventually sort
itself out as new and accessed object go to the back of the queue. 

I mention this because the first time I saw it it worried me enough
that I ended-up deleting the cache to be on the safe side.
