Will do.

I noticed that running fc-cache as user does not update or recreate
directory cache files in $HOME/.fonts, although I do have ~/.fonts in
fonts.conf. Explicitly running fc-cache $HOME/.fonts does, though.

Once the caches in $HOME/.fonts were updated, fc-list : stopped creating
the global cache.
