Unfortunatly deleting the caches doesn't even do the job 100% of 
the time. I have modified code and deleted both caches four 
times and sometimes I still get the first or second version of 
the code being executed even though view source shows the 
current code. 

I personally consider this a giant bug in JS since it serious 
impedes the development effort and greatly reduces my over 
confidence in Netscape, Navigator, and JS.
