If cache directory is missing (e.g /var/cache/salt/master/minions/ not present) then command

salt-run cache.grains

fails and produces python traceback like...

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/salt/runners/cache.py", line 19, in _cdata for minion in os.listdir(mdir): OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/cache/salt/master/minions ##

This may happen if cache is disabled in master config file and cache directory is not created at all.

minion_data_cache: False

but it may not be obvious to the users from the python error.
