~/.fonts.cache-1 is shared between machines whose font-directories might have
different timestamps. When started on machine A, the ~/.fonts.cache-1 file
can contain the timestamps of machine B and applications will regenerate the
cache therefore. The same repeats on machine B because fonts.cache-1 has now
the machine A timestamps. Now, the recursion starts at A again...
If you always run fc-cache on the parent directory (*) of any place you
install fonts, then this shouldn't be an issue.
~/.fonts.cache-1 is only for font directories that don't have proper
fonts.cache-1 files in them.
(*) Parent directory or directory itself depends on the details, but
if you install stuff in /usr/share/fonts/foo it's better
to run fc-cache /usr/share/fonts.
