How did you empty your Netscape cache?  Many, many versions of Netscape
do not delete all of the files.  (For example, my cache was set to be
5MB.  When I looked at it one day, there were 15MB of files in it.
I did a "Clear Disk Cache" and it only dropped down to 10MB.)

Doing this should help:

  rm -r ~/.netscape/cache/??/*

It seems the version I'm running at home now (4.76 I think?) doesn't
have this problem... At least, not regularly like older versions did.
