My hunch is that you are being hit by mod_proxy brokenness not mod_cache 
issues.  2.0.53 uses the 'stable' mod_proxy, while 2.1.3 has a rewritten 
mod_proxy - which still has significant issues.  For the most part, 
2.0.53's mod_disk_cache (i.e. from SVN 2.0.x branch) is mostly equivalent 
to 2.1.3's mod_disk_cache.  So, if it works with 2.0.53 from SVN and 
doesn't work with 2.1.3 from SVN, then I think mod_proxy is a more likely 

I know that there were some fixes recently made to mod_proxy that might 
help.  So, what revision of 2.1.3 are you trying?

I know that Mladen fixed some race conditions, and I know Sander and I have 
been making some recent commits in the last week to fix other brokenness. 
And, there's still stuff that we know just doesn't work: i.e. 'ProxyPass 
/foo/bar !'.  So, I don't think I can recommend 2.1.3 for proxy 
functionality as it needs a lot more care and feeding before it is usable.

Thanks!  -- justin
