Not rebuilding everything. as it commented in the source code as well
as the git log, it was supposed to enforce to rebuild the directory
cache only for certain font path non-recursively. that said it was
just a situation what I was expecting and could be improved
furthermore. let me think about this.

Thanks for reporting,
