i do not have the same issue you reported.

# dum /var/cache/fontconfig/
2M      /var/cache/fontconfig/

# p /var/cache/fontconfig/*(N.) | wc -l

One thing i noticed. When fc-cache reports 'failed to write cache' then not all
mtimes in '/var/cache/fontconfig' are updated.
Only when when i give all font paths explictly on cmd line as mentioned earlier
ALL mtimes in '/var/cache/fontconfig' are updated.

Sounds somewhat logically. The question is why fc-cache fails to update all font
paths it knows about.

kind regards,
