Yes, OSX has write cache enabling.  Presumably it's on by default 
(though I admit to not knowing how to confirm that), so my numbers 
include it.  That's why I ran the test under a variety of 
circumstances.  Benchmarks are hard, and the numbers vary a lot, so I 
flagged the variance.  I'm not sure what all the factors are, but I 
believe your (implied) suspicion that cache'ing is one such factor.
