Thanks to all involved in converting these manuals.

It's not mysterious; the dbal manual describes it on page 16 (the old 
.sxw page number):

Can I put the cache tables in a different database?

Yes, you can map the cache tables somewhere else. There is one caveat, 
though – if you put the cache_pages table into a different database than 
the pages table the FE will throw an error. The tslib_fe class uses a 
join over those two tables, which cannot work. Never.
You can do two things to work around this: Use the file-based caching 
that is available since TYPO3 4.0.0 or apply the patch 
class.tslib_fe.php.diff found in the doc/ directory of the DBAL 
extension (beware: this patch is not maintained anymore and may not 
apply cleanly to new versions of TYPO3).

There are of course a couple of ways to proceed:

- keep the patch, update it
- remove the patch, update the manual
- remove the patch, incorporate it in core or dbal

The third option would decrease performance if we include it in the core.
The second option seems to make the most sense.

Maybe Xavier can give his opinion?
