The problem with caching is that you never know if it's up to date.
More importantly, this add-on appears to do something in the background at every page load, even when it is not being used.
As deaner suggested, I had set up a PageManager tab and rarely used it. Things slowed down, but when I de-activated the add-on, everything sped up.
There should be no need for caching if the add-on only did its thing when called upon. A slight delay is acceptable if you have just asked it to go and get information from the database.

Demo with pagination
I just installed this version and I have been playing around with it a bit. I added 'DateLastActive' and 'LastCommentPost' to the list so I would be able to see when users last logged in and when they last commented.
However, I noticed that the page is unable to sort those columns correctly by date (it can sort them by being NULL or not, but not by date).
I checked the original where you can list the date of registration, but that was also unable to sort by date.
I have tried changing the TH class to sortable-date and sortable-date-djm etc, but that didn't do anything (i'm not sure whether that is just a css-style issue or whether that is actually used by the sorting algorithm)
Has anyone else noticed this? Or did I mess up the code too much?
