Is anybody else seeing this? Have you removed and repopulated the cvs version of the cache? I think if there's a version mismatch between mutt and the cache, mutt will just silently ignore the cache. Another thing to try is to use a directory for the cache instead of a file. What's your architecture? Maybe a 32-bitism crept in when I added a couple of extra fields to the cache...
