If it uses up too much of your memory. Although you'll probably also
need to change auth_process_size then, because by default it kills the
process if it grows larger than 256 MB. You could also disable it by
setting it to 0.

I think you could do with a lot less :) I think a single user takes
maybe 50-100 bytes normally. Even with 200 bytes your 5000 users would
fit into 1 MB. Of course negative hits are also cached, so the rest of
the memory would go to them. I'd decrease it to 10 MB or so :)
Also you might want to increase auth_cache_ttl from the default hour.
