So try wiping cache or change the kernel for the rom

Dalvik cache is rebuilt only on first boot or if an app is changed via recovery or if you upgrade to higher OS (like ics to JB)...
Some times it gets corrupted and wiping helps...(like 1 in 10 times...) and the cache gets rebuilt (android is upgrading....)
Cache is wiped whenever you reboot so it's one of the most pointless thing to do in recovery for stock roms..(wiping batteystats is the most pointless thing...)
On CM roms ,system dalvik lies in /cache so wiping cache is equivalent to wiping dalvik for system apps..
Use titanium backup to backup all apps and do a complete wipe..
