update svg symbol markers

In QGIS (2.14.5LTR) when having an svg marker symbol it is not updated when editing it in inkscape and saving it to the same name/location. Even when switching to another svg symbol and then switching back to the one before, the old version of the symbol is displayed and not the one just edited. And simply loading the new version does not work too (the old one is still kept).

Seems to me that there is a QgsSvgCache instantiated when load an svg symbol from file, that is not cleared / updated when load a svg with the same name/location.

Request: Would it be possible to add some sort of 'update' or 'refresh' button to the QgsSvgSelectorWidget that updates the cache when the symbol has changed?
