The code was designed so that the cache could be computed in parallel by
many processes, but that some process would see the 'current' state of
the system and write a correct cache file.

I remain mystified as to why this doesn't actually work; is it file
systems with coarse (1s) timestamps causing troubles? Or can someone
construct a sequence of operations which cannot be satisfied by this
process, even with arbitrarily precise timestamps?
