We're using our own large-file tuned cache module (I know, we should 
really publish it properly), and clean on oldest atime with a script 
that does rm. There's nothing cache-related that I know of that ever 
truncates files.

Just to rule it out, I changed our httpd init script to leave the 
stacksize ulimit at Linux default (8MB) without changing anything
