having ENABLE_CACHE on causes weirdness during upgrade

Upgrading to 2.1 from 2.0.7 with ENABLE_CACHE on causes weirdness after upgrade. I don't have the exact error messages because to show that this was the issue, I had to delete the files in the cache.

Basically, because of the category changes in 2.1 I was seeing errors wherever there was a dropdown for categories that merged the link_cats and regular categories. I believe this is because the queries are different here, but I'm not sure (haven't tracked this down in code yet).

The basic fix for this is that the cache needs to get purged as part of the upgrade process. This would maintain a good user experience throughout.

Cache flush is part of the upgrade. Once before, and once after. Could it be that you have plugins that need to be upgraded?

The cache is flushed before and after the upgrade... something else is at work here.
