Dreamweaver CS5 not updating database view

I've run into a problem with Dreamweaver CS5 (11.0.3) relating to its Server Behavior feature.  The problem, which only began recently, is that when Dreamweaver connects to a locally stored MySQL server it does not show a current listing of tables or data within those tables, but rather what seems to be a cached copy.  If I add a new table, modify an existing table, or even add a new user - Dreamweaver fails to see these changes. In the event a new user is added, Dreamweaver simply will not log into the database as that user rather it returns a timeout error.

As I said, this is a relatively new problem - my hope was that I could simply find where Dreamweaver CS5 saves its Server Behavior settings, or even Site preferences, and delete these files to have Dreamweaver rebuild whatever files may be needed.  Thus far, I've had no luck with Google.  I have tried deleting the MySQL connection from within Dreamweaver, exiting the program, rebooting the computer, and then trying to remake with no success.  It connects, it just doesn't show a current display.

Anyone run into anything similar before, or know where Dreamweaver keeps its settings files?

Thanks in advance.

I've run into a problem with Dreamweaver CS5 (11.0.3) where it appears to be relying upon cached data when asked to query a MySQL database.  Both Dreamweaver CS5 and MySQL (5.1.50) are installed locally on a development computer which is running Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit).  Does anyone know where Dreamweaver CS5 stores its Server Behavior, Sites definitions, or any other configuration files?

My guess is if I could find these and delete them, DW would recreate at next launch and maybe
