  I think this was already committed to unstable before I saw this. 

  I'm still getting the same results when trying to clear unused caches,
  but I can work around it. Aside from some incorrect refresh coding on
  some sites, it doesn't matter anyway. Speaking of which, I'll test
  this further on a few of the URLs which required a manual refresh

  Thanks. :)

  Take care,
