I did that. Actually a bit different, as the referrals cache is used in 
#insert as well. So to be on the safe side, I just added a new lock 
object "referralsLock" to the class and synchronized the blocks using 
the referrals cache in #resolve and #insert. dfs.ttl is set to 15s as well.

It seems to work fine now.
