The only known issue is that on some PCs the cache takes a lot of CPU
time when it first starts up, and there is not a lot that can be done
about that - the working copy crawl is an intensive task. There have
been other vague reports of problems, but without details it is
impossible to pin anything down. There are also problems caused by
virus scanners, but again nothing we can do about it.

Do you have any information to substantiate this claim? The cache has
been in use by thousands of users for the last couple of years. We
would never claim that it is bug-free, but most people consider it a
useful feature.
