I agree 100%, that would be exactly my problem with apt-cacher: the
install script makes/chowns /var/cache/apt-cacher, but if the sysadmin
later nukes that dir, apt-cacher can't recreate it. It runs as Apache's
user (usually www-data), so if the cache dir doesn't exist when it's
called, it's stuffed.
