Thanks for your response Mike. Yes, now I see the other places where
dircache.last_size is set to 0, and understand that those are important.
(I probably should have looked at that myself.)

Adding some splashf() I see that dircache.last_size is set to 0 on
shutdown before scanning is finished at the end of build_volumes(),
at dircache.last_size = dircache.size. So how about adding the
dirchache.size != 0 condition there to not update last_size if size is
0? Like this:
