Please don't include these two options in the generated buildout.cfg,
or it will prevent the shared cache to be used.
If you want a global download and eggs directories, you can create a
~/.buildout/default.cfg file with
eggs-directory = /home/user/.buildout/eggs
download-cache = /home/user/.buildout/downloads
