I am pretty sure the following tile needs to be re-rendered :

I read that the following url, request a new rendering...

But after that when I call this url

I got :
Tile is clean. Last rendered at Thu Mar 17 04:40:53 2011 and today is April 8 ?!?

What can I do ? to get my tile refreshed ?

In my experience high zoom levels (zoomed in far) are re-rendered very quickly, but when you zoom out a bunch (eg to level 9 as in your tile) it re-renders very infrequently. I suspect that lower zoom levels are on a schedule or something, and don't respond to the "dirty" system, or respond, but on a significantly different schedule. I'd love for someone to confirm this and share the details, as I haven't been able to find it documented anywhere.

Would be lovely to have it documented here.

In case of the old tile eventually being cached in your browser's cache you may want to open the tile directly into your browser by right-clicking over it (choose "Open image" or whatever your browser writes) and press CTRL+F5 to fetch a clean copy from the server.

thanks about that. But I know about webbrowser cache, and the problem is not coming from there. Thanks anyway.

I just commented on this issue to another question at . What's the c.* in the URL? (I'm assuming that my guess in the linked comment may well not be correct..).
