How temporary?  You need to look at htcacheclean for mopping these up
periodically.  You don't want mod_disk_cache constantly cleaning up
after itself or at apache shutdown, otherwise the server would be
seriously slower and at startup the cache feature would be worthless.

If this isn't desired, see mod_mem_cache.
