 What you are experiencing is running out of space, and persistent storage
 currently has no code to handle it, therefor it restarts.

 The fix PHK committed fixed corruption, which made restarting problematic,
 but does not solve the lack of LRU, which is distinct and a feature

 The only remedy for this is to make sure you do not run out of space.
 Either by caching content for a shorter duration or by increasing the
 available space.

 As this is a known limitation of persistent storage, and the correct code
 to fix it is a feature request, I'm closing this. This does not indicate
 we're not planning to fix it, just that we do not track feature requests
 in trac.

 I'm closing this as "fixed" because the corruption and origional assert
 should have been fixed. The LRU-thing is not.
