#28957: Media uploader is confused

 If I upload an image and insert into a post/page, evaluate it, decide I
 need a few image changes, delete the old image from the media library,
 upload the image again (SAME NAME), then WordPress inserts the OLD image,
 not the new one. Every single time!

 I always delete the old image before uploading the new because I dont want
 100 versions of any image in the library, so maybe this is a cache
 problem??? Maybe the old image is still cached (for a very long time) ???

 This has been so for a long time and the only way to go around it is to
 rename the image to something that WordPress imageuploader hasnt seen
 before and then upload it again.
