This can be possible if you have too much cache space and if the objects
expire before filling in the disk. I have three cache servers in that
case: in one of these, people work mostly on professionnal servers, with
few images and the cache never fills in. The other two are too recent and
not yet fully used. On the other end, I know a school where the
5-gigabytes cache is full in two days. Students obviously use the Web
differently :-)

To summary: may be a smaller cache is suited to your needs.

Either you increment the duration of stay in the cache or you simply
reduce the cache space (be careful, user's behaviour can change later or
the number of users can increase).
