My hypothesis is that if refile targets are requested from an indirect 
buffer at first then next attempt from the base buffer causes 
recalculation because of previous result is not properly stored. The 
code at the end of the function requires a similar fix.

Certainly if a buffer has its base buffer then file name associated with 
the base buffer should be tried at first. However besides indirect 
buffers, buffers not associated with any files at all may exist. I am 
not sure that using buffer name is a good idea for them since temporary 
buffers may be discarded and new ones with same names may be created. My 
point is that refile targets for temporary buffers should not be cached 
at all or buffer name should be used as the key. Behavior should be 
deterministic. I do not request such change from you, but maybe it is 
just an additional couple of lines at the location you are changing anyway.

No, I missed commit message in the expected format
Just send the patch as an attachment.
