You did run dnscache-conf, right? What account did you use for the
logging account? dnscache-conf should be called as 
dnscache-conf <account to run dnscache as> <logging account> /dir 

If you stop and restart dnscache, do you get any
interesting messages?

svscan should be logging information somewhere (where is very system
setup specific, /var/log/svscan using the debian daemontools packages),
is there any information there?
