Soy Caching breaks i18n in my plugin

In my soy templates I use


for i18n. The keys are available both in English and German. There seems to be a problem with caching:

If the template is rendered the first time for a user with a German locale, all other users will see the German text. This cache is valid until I reinstall the plugin. This just affects localized texts but not other dynamic data.

Example (with Fritz and James, who use different browsers):

  1. Deploy
  2. Fritz opens the page -> German
  3. James opens the Page - > German
  4. Deploy
  5. James opens the Page -> English
  6. Fritz opens the Page -> English

There seem to be issues with caching:

But I can't reproduce this problem with Soy Templates used by Atlassian. It occurs both on a dev and a production system. Am I missing something?

Jira 5.1.8

<component-import key="soyTemplateRenderer" interface=""/>

    <web-resource name="foo" key="foo">

        <!-- transform calls to AJS.getText() inside JS files -->
        <transformation extension="js">
            <transformer key="jsI18n"/>

        <!-- Make available to the client-side in JS as well... -->
        <transformation extension="soy">
            <transformer key="soyTransformer"/>
        <resource type="download" name="" location="/templates/status/"/>

Hm, I didn't find any difference to the way Atlassian uses Soy besides the missing

<property key="content-type" value="text/javascript"/>

But setting the content-type didn't help.
