I have exactly the same problem and reported it already several times
without getting any helpful answers (see
It's especially harmful for pages that have no link in typo3 pointing to
them at all (yes, I need typo3 pages that are only reached via redirects
and not via a direct link).

Anyway, I found that setting 'enableUrlDecodeCache' => 0 (in init) and
'firstHitPathCache' => 1 (in pagePath) can be used as a workaround.
(Although I am not really happy about the performance decrease that might
happen because of the DecodeCache being disabled.)

Hope this helps
