We have a problem where someone entered a hostname into the database

lowercase entries. We use a web program to update the database. There
was a bug in my web application where I didn't force the hostname string
to lowercase letters, which has been corrected.
We deleted the host entries for the user but when we added the hostnames
back with lowercase letters, it still shows up as capital letters only
for the users that were entered initially. If we enter a new user for
one of the hosts with a lowercase hostname it works fine, meaning the
hostname is lowercase for any new user not entered initially.
Are you using
Even if we add in the hostname via the console for the users initially
entered, the capital hostname reappears after we apply the changes. It
seems those hostnames with capital letters are cached.
Is there a way to flush the database cache or permanently remove those
cached capital hostname entries for each user?
