Well, I am not sure if it is a regression to diagnose problematic
untracked cache information left by earlier version of the software
with bugs. After all, this is still an experimental feature, and we
do want to see the warning to serve its purpose to diagnose possible
remaining bugs, and new similar ones when a newer iteration of the
feature introduces, no?
