I'd just like to know why "view=cache" is the default and if there are
some drawbacks when using "view=solvstate"?

Sat-solver's solv parser was never checked against corrupt solv
files, so it's probably possible to exploit it and do nasty things.
That's not a problem for libzypp, as it only handles solv files
written by itself.
So I didn't dare to make view=solvstate the default because of
security reasons. If you trust the other side, you can use it
to speed up things.

And how the hell the can handle the situation? :)

I don't know, it doesn't seem to be an issue here.
