The code of the IndexedDiskCache suggests that the index file is being
read if it exists and is not corrupted. I can see no configuration
setting for this.

The IndexedDiskCache registers a Shutdown Hook with the runtime. So the
dispose() method should be run at JVM exit the latest. In every other
case if all managers associated with this cache call release(), the
cache is disposed. During dispose() data files are (optionally)
optimized and the key file is written.
