idk if thi will help buit a fwe not3es.  just in case they are
relevant to your case.

fwiw i have not heard of interactions between org-goto and the refile
mechanism and the cache.  i hafve not heard that the latter used a
cache but i do not use it.  refile with and withoyut the goto prefix
should normatively be congruent and both use cache.

i used to use the refile cache, then discovered that ido-hacks sped
ido so much that i didn't need it.  it would cache one fileset and
then be potentially not usable for another.  sort of like one cache
and multiple callers.  idk if htat got fixed.  probably not used much.

until recently in maint, ido and ido hacks with both refile and refile
goto [note: org-refile with a goto arg, not org-goto] has worked
perfectly.  with no cache.  now, there is an issue, where with no
cache that i know of, the first use, or the first use in a long time,
will actually present a huge file list that includes crazy elements
and is not constrained by even the verify function.  thus if i type
faster than it goes, the wrong item gets selected.  even if i use the
same selectors as normal.  so there's some bug or race condition.  it
is slow at those times.  this might not be relevant to your case but
seems worth mentioning.  i think i have not filed a bug report as i
don't know how to repro it at this time.
