I'd like to put a little status about the various cache bugs I've (and
other on the list) been encountering.

This is against CVS snapshot from today 2006-01-30 :

* fc-cache . bug => FIXED
* fc-cache /foo/bar vs fc-cache /foo/bar/ => FIXED
* fc-cat crashes on ~/.fonts.cache-2 file or on global cache files =>
* ~/.fonts.cache-2 file being re-created when ~/.fonts exist each time a
fontconfig based application is still there.
* fc-cat ~/.fonts-cache-2 now returns empty information.

Once the ~/.fonts.cache-2 recreation bug is fixed, it would be probably
a good idea to push a 2.3.94 release so it is more tested by people not
living with CVS snapshots ;)
