 From what I can see from the source code, template caching is only done 
for templates that are used by MM's internal archiver for archive generataion.

The templates that you can edit through the web GUI do not fall into this 
category so there is no need to refresh the cache contents after 
thru-the-web-GUI editing of templates by using mailman restart or any other

Being paranoid, I harbour a dark suspicion that it may not. But I'll take a 
look at the MM source code to what the situation is. I feel another patch 
or patch upgrade coming on.
