The condition can be true if the loop is executed at least once. This
change would appear to allow the call to succeed in the case where the
cache can be topped up to at least "min", but not as far as "max".

It would be good to know in what situation this has actually been hit
though (and indeed whether this has actually been seen) - the system
must be very short on memory to need this, and I'd be surprised if
further failures didn't happen later on.
