The KDE Frameworks check the modification time of /usr/share/applications/ 
every time the cache gets accessed, and recreate the cache if that is newer 
than the time when the cache was last updated.
If that doesn't trigger reliably, that's likely because the folder 
modification time didn't change for some reason I suppose.

Kind Regards,
