Well, Ok, I got it.  I just made the alias/redirect arrays
rollover if they hit max.  Well, not completely roll over, since
I wanted to save the alias/redirects from the config files, so
it rolls over in the extra space in the table.

It may not be the best cacheing (if you can even call it that) but
its the quickest way to fix it.
