Log Messages and Authors are not refreshed

Here is a situation:
Somebody makes a commmit and I read it in the Log Messages. The next
day this "Somebody" changes his commit message (or even changes the
Author, it's the same with authors and messages). Then I open my Log
Messages and see the same old author/message. Clicking "Refresh" or
hitting F5 doesn't help.

So what I expect:
See the new author/message at once or after clicking "Refresh".

And what I get:
Only the old author/message is displayed.

Right-clicking and selecting "Edit author" or "Edit log message" does
show the new author/message, but this is a bad option. And yes, I know
that I can clear the messages cache in the settings and then open the
Log Messages and I will see the new message.
But both above options are not good options - I could not knew that I
actually need to "edit log message" or clear the messages cache.
Well, unless the message states "I'm running away, and will write the
comment for this commit tomorrow". And even then I could clear the
cache, but this person has not changed his message yet, and I'm just
dancing here in vain.

So I would like TortoiseSVN to compare timestamps or whatever and
update modified authors and messages on its own, without me clearing
the cache. Thank you.

P.S. This was already discussed earlier (concerning authors only), but
was not fixed. The reply was to clear the cache. I have explained why
it is a bad option above.
