It should be easier, and more efficient, to add one crontab job that runs fc-cache as root and another one that runs the same as the user which owns the XeTeX-to-PDF service. Let them run at the same time, say 4 o'clock, that both take advantage of the *file system* caches.

The first time both should run with -v that one can compare whether root and the service user use the same set-up.



There are three types of people in this world: those who can count, and those who cannot.
