PLEASE DON'T top post, it destroys the flow of conversation.

Again, I do not know the specifics of the cache module you are using 
but it is very likely that those files are still there because they 
are still valid cached content. If they aren't, it is likely that 
they will not get removed until they are invalidated when somebody 
tries to access the corresponding page or file that has gone out of 
date in the cache.

Just stopping and starting the server should not remove the cached 
content. What would be the point of that? If I had cached content, I 
would want whatever is still valid to survive a restart of the server.
