Necessary to do a /dev/build after making changes to configuration via YAML files?

I've noticed that when I make changes to the YAML configuration files I either need to manually clear out silverstripe-cache or do a /dev/build for the changes to be picked up.

Is this normal?

Thank you.

You should only need to do a ?flush=1 when editing config / templates but 3.* seems to have an issue that it doesn't clear out the old state on ?flush=1 (could be part of a 'feature'). rm -rf 'd the cache folder is my current goto until I get bored enough to work out the flush issue.

Fair enough. Good to know I'm not the only one.

Thanks Will.
