I had this same problem some time ago:
Turns out it's a problem with the kernel module using 32 bit ints for
calculations that determine when to trim the cache. I have patches
against the 1.2.13 Linux module which ups the effective cache limit to
about 80GB if you're interested. I haven't adapted this patch to any
1.3.x versions, but I suspect that wouldn't be too hard.
