QGIS server caches layers with same ID but in different projects as one

Hi !

When serving WMS maps, it seems QGIS servers caches the layers using their id, but with no regard to the project file.

Example :
myproject_1.qgs and myproject_2.gs both have a layer called mylayer with id mylayer20140515221023333 (this can easily happen if the project was duplicated for instance)

Displays mylayer as in myproject_1.

Displays mylayer as in myproject_1 instead of mylayer as in myproject_2 !!

At this point, the only way I found to display mylayer from myproject_2 is to restart the server, which makes it then in turn impossible to display mylayer from myproject1...

Thanks !!

Unfortunately this is a well known issue, and there should be already a patch/pull request available.

One obvious solution would be to add a prefix like "projectname_" at the beginning of the actual layerid.

Please raise this issue in the dev mailing list, as it affects many (me included) I will underline too that a action must be taken.
