Would it be feasible to avoid crashing when the cache is misconfigured,
or even set to the default setting, so users see a performance drop
instead of a crash?

I know our code is very lazy about checking allocations in general (which
I don't like, but that's besides the point). In this context some additional
effort into avoiding crashes would be a worthwhile investment.
