I'm not sure if I understand your problem. Did you actually have any
trouble resolving the name, or are you just wondering about the cache
content (without having any actual trouble)? If it's the latter,
please be more specific about what you did, what you expected, and
what you actually got.
If it's the former, does that always happen, or is it an occasional
problem? If it's occasional, that may be a known bug in 9.5 about
cache entry management, and will be fixed in the next beta.
