Batcache works fine, we use it on to serve 40-50 million  
pageviews/day.  For a single server setup, however, wp-super-cache is  
probably better.  Batcache's real use is in a multi web-server  
environment since it doesn't write to the filesystem there are no sync  
issues, etc.  If you want to contact me off list about your WordPress/ 
Batcache issues I can try to help, but seems like the nginx list isn't  
the best place for this discussion.
