I'm experience this strange issue on EE on the CMS home page only:

I edit the homepage the changes are reflected on http://MYDOMAIN/home but not on http://MYDOMAIN.
If I clean the cache from backend it still don't see the changes on http://MYDOMAIN but I need to remove cache files manually.

The issue is related to the full page cache and looks like the 2 requests (http://MYDOMAIN and http://MYDOMAIN/home) have different cache.

I can see that Mage_Cms_Model_Resource_Page has in the _afterSave a call to Mage::app()->getCacheInstance()->invalidateType('layout');

Anyone have same issue ?

  • Do you have an external full page cache, which is triggerd through the "Clear magento cache storage" and you clicked the button? Commented Apr 1, 2014 at 13:31

I had an issue where clearing the cache via the admin did not completely remove the full page cache directory under var. To work around this I added an observer to the event adminhtml_cache_flush_all and then when directory storage of cache then I supply removed the folder and all the sub folders.

I am not 100% sure if this is the same issue you are having but it might help you out.
