It would basicly be the amount of different host names you've used.

Each curl handle has its own cache and they are not shared unless specificly
made so.

I'll try to write an internal function within a few days that'll check the
internal state and output the cache data, so that we can make calls to that
function at several places to help pinpoint exactly where/when this problem

We've had others saying that removing the prune call solves this problem, and
I guess that's the quick work-around for you as well. The only problem is then
that by doing that, the cache will never be pruned...
