(I guess you also assumed the current cache is smaller than the old

I've not tested the behavior, but in my understanding of the code,
nothing will happen by just changing the max-cache-size.  Cache
cleaning will be triggered first time a new entry is added since then.
It should be the same for both 9.4 and 9.5 (while how the cache is
cleaned is totally different).
