Aggressive caching of proofing formats in Electron #566

I updated the version of one of my proofing formats from 1.1.0 to 1.1.1. The change was reflected immediately in the online twine at the Twinery, but due to issue #563 I couldn't test there so I was testing in a download of 2.3.1 (Mac OS). The format never updated automagically, and even when I deleted and re-added it, the old format # appeared, not the new one.

I tried 2.3.2 after that to see if the problem was fixed, but had the same issue of the old version being cached. Note, I also had to close and reopen Twine to get a deleted story format to leave the list; if I added it without doing that I'd get two copies in the list. (Their button states remained amusingly in sync with each other.)

I should mention that this wasn't a superficial numbering issue; the bug fix from the updated story format was not present, either.

I read a bit about unwanted Electron caching, including some SO advice about how to clear the cache programmatically, but I didn't find a manual workaround for the problem.
