There was a bug in some older versions of fontconfig which would not
correctly update the per-user cache file in all circumstances. You may be
hitting that here. To work around it, make sure your per-directory cache
files are all up-to-date by running fc-cache
When this is working, fontconfig should check only the timestamps on the
directories themselves, and not every font file.
