I could be totally off base here, but its possible that JavaScript may
internally need the cache to be set higher than 0 to function properly.

Rather than looking at the code that breaks when the cache is 0, if you post
the code the breaks when the cache is set at 5000 we could try and help you
with a workaround (so you could leave your cache on).  I've seen several
posts now about the *caching* problem so I don't doubt that its happening to
people, just haven't seen any example code for the rest of us to reproduce
the *bug* with.  If your code is sensative and you don't want to post it, an
in-depth explination of what is *exactly* happening might help some of us
understand better.

Hope I can help,
