I looked up the reference Frederick gave and found JOSM already supplies 
what I need. The discussion reference is:


The advice was:

You can clear the cache by right
clicking in the map and using the "Flush tile cache" option in the
context menu. That will clear the cache for the currently visible
imagery layer. You can also change where the cache is stored in your
preferences under the WMS/TMS "Settings" tab.
