I can reproduce this on Drupal HEAD.  Both page_cache_get() and 
page_cache_set() use the "$base_url . request_uri()" construct.
So while this isn't right, it shouldn't impact performance.

What errors do you get?

Maybe we should use url($_GET['q']) instead?  We'd have to move url() to 
bootstrap.inc though.  Test and patch?
