Any ideas on how to remedy that? I don't have another plan for making it
perform well. Plugging it into the cache invalidation mechanism seems
like overkill, but I suppose that would solve the problem.

Aren't there a few other cases like this floating around the code? I
know the single-xid cache is potentially vulnerable to xid wraparound
for the same reason.
