Are you using mem_cache and disk_cache simultaneously? Why?

I'd recommend focusing on disk_cache, which is better tested and ofter
more performant than mem_cache anyway.

This issue has been discussed on the dev list at some length. There is
really no easy way to handle it. You don't really want to hold all the
other requests waiting for the first to finish. And if you try to
stream the cached content to the other requests, you wind up in big
trouble if something goes wrong with the first request.
