You don't need to clear the cache. Shift-F5 or Ctrl-F5 will re-fetch
the currently displayed messages from the repository.

There are no timestamps to check in subversion's API. The only way for
a client to find out if a revprop has changed is to go get it from the
repository, so you may as well turn off the cache altogether. You
could get notifications if you add a post-revprop-change hook in the
repository to send an email when such things change.
