ignore not ignoring?

#1

I have been using syncthing for a couple months now, and yesterday, I noticed the following problem. I am using syncthing v1.1.1 "Erbium Earthworm" (go1.12.2 linux-amd64) builduser@svetlemodry 2019-04-08 18:54:39 UTC on Arch Linux.

The .stignore file on one of the PCs is

!.gnupg
!.ssh
!Desktop
!Documents
!Music
!openvpn
!Pictures
!Videos
!.todo
!.todo.actions.d
!.vimrc
!.viminfo
!.vim
**

Yesterday I noticed, that also .cache/ is being synchronized.

Why, and how can I have syncthing ignore .cache/ again?

Does Syncthing really sync the whole .cache dir? Or just a subdirectory or subsubdirectory (or subsubsub …), like .gnupg, .ssh, Desktop, Documents, Music, openvpn, Pictures, Videos, .todo, .todo.actions.d, .vimrc, .viminfo or .vim?
