Cache support is still experimental - so please open bugzillas
for your issues found on  bugzilla.redhat.com
(if you are not using Fedora/RHEL - use Fedora Rawhide for your reports)

I assume your problem is likely related to still missing repair support
for cached volumes.

You would need to use  cache utils  (cache_check, cache_repair, cache_dump...) 
to fix broken metadata.
