It's called when you initialize-output-translations, which happens
(via ensure-output-translations) the first time that an output
translation is computed by apply-output-translations.

To reset, call initialize-output-translations again.

I recommend you *do not* hack *user-cache*, but instead give a
parameter to initialize-output-translations.
