This is probably a shortcoming of my recent refactoring in the WFS provider 
where I borrowed some things from the WMS provider. Instead of full caching as 
currently done vs no caching as before, perhaps there could be a medium way: 
if capabilities are needed due to pushing the Connect button, then we should 
re-issue a network request. In other cases, we could use the cached version. 
Actually looking at the code, I think this is what the WMS provider does.

Could you file a ticket about that (if there isn't already one) ?
