I've got some changes pending for fontconfig which place the directory
timestamp right in the cache file; when that timestamp changes, the
cache is invalidated. As it no longer cares what timestamp the cache
file has, and uses simple equality (instead of 'earlier'), it should be
much more resistent to system time changes (and other sources of clock

You might try the current 'master' version of fontconfig and see if that
