It might be related to your use of two avatars if you haven't moved one of the avatar's cache location on your computer (even using different viewers I've seen some interaction between the caches if they both are left in the default location).

I've been clearing my cache each launch of the SL viewer for years and I have not had a single cache problem since.  I do that by clicking the "clear cache" button in preferences before I log in each and every time I load up SL (that clears the cache the next time I launch it.....it's a habit now and only takes a few seconds both to do and for everything to rezz at log in).

Are you sure that it's a cache issue?  Have you tried all of the other possible cures for poor mesh rezzing?

1. Are Basic Shaders enabled (in Preferences >> Graphics)?

2. Have you tried disabling both of the Alpha Mask options in Preferences >> Graphics >> Rendering?

3. Have you tried increasing the MeshMaxConcurrentRequests  debug setting in your Advanced menu?

4. Have you tried turning off Lighting and Shadows?

I don't doubt that clearing your cache is taking care of the problem temporarily, but I don't know why it should.  It just seems more likely that it's either a setting issue that could be cleared up with one of the things above or you have something spooky going on in your Internet connection that's trashing textures as they are downloaded to your cache.  A failing router, maybe?  Perhaps a DNS issue?  I'm really fishing here......
