I think that this will be your problem; for some strange reason we
keep the cache throughout the lifetime of the scan, even through we
use the target details to key on the cache.

The only advantage to doing this is if you repeat scan a server within
the same instance of Nikto, which is unlikely.

I've raised this as bug #219.

For now you can work around this by disabling the cache by using -nocache.
