Updating to latest version of DBCacheContrib (6.00) resulted in some pages not loading with error message indicating Foswiki could not find The Foswiki error log reported that:
Can't locate in @INC (you may need to install the CHI module) /var/www/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Contrib/CacheContrib/ line 22.
A quick search lead me to CPAN:CHI (or for Debian/Ubuntu: libchi-perl). Once installed, the errors were resolved. It appears that this module needs to be added to list of dependencies.
