Love the exposed block cache settings -- http://drupal.org/node/243365 -- but in my testing, altering the view block cache setting in the views UI did not alter the block cache setting in the blocks table (that is, the setting which is actually used in getting and setting the cache). Seems like there needs to be some way for the view block display to update its corresponding entry in the blocks table.

By the way, this also affects developers who modify the block cache setting in a view defined by code; they will have to manually update the cache setting in the blocks table.

I'm not entirely sure there's a great deal I can do about this.

Perhaps clearing the views cache could sync up the block cache settings?

Not much views can do itself, this is core bug http://drupal.org/node/235673.

I have no time to work on a patch atm...

Marking this postponed, awaiting resolution of that patch. It's possible that Views could forcibly change that setting in the blocks table if we think it is necessary.

Status update: This looks like it's being worked on in D7, not sure if it'll get backported to 6 or not.

I'm going to close this, based on the other issue. Once that gets fixed (if ever), people who still have problems can open a new issue.
