Comment (by pixelgeek):

 But even if WP Super Cache fixes their usage it still is possible for
 other plugins and coders to run into the same issue.

 Maybe a straight test isn't necessarily the way to fix it (I'll admit that
 my php skills aren't good enough to be commenting in any depth) but I
 think that there needs to be some way to avoid having the caching code
 access the object if there is the possibility that it won't be there.

 Especially when we're dealing with something as screwy as timing issues.
 As Donncha notes this doesn't happen consistently across platforms or php
 instances so it might not even be something that a dev might see on their
 own system and yet have it crop up on other sites.
