Dataflows listed in Power BI Desktop don't get updated after account switch

As per the subject line, above, here are the steps to reproduce:

 

1. Log into the PBI service from Power BI Desktop (in my case, 64-bit October Edition) from "Account A"

2. Get Data > Power BI Dataflows (beta)

3. Dataflows that should be visible for the logged-in account are listed, so far so good

4. Cancel, or load your data first, I don't think it matters

5. Switch PBI Desktop to another PBI account, say "Account B"

6. Get Data > Power BI Dataflows (beta)

7. The listed dataflows are those of Account A, not account B

8. The Refresh icon next to Display Options doesn't change the listed dataflows

 

I tried closing and restarting PBI Desktop, same result. This looks like a relatively serious bug.

Try to clear the datasource settings:

 

File -> options and settings -> data source settings -> choose "Power BI Dataflows" from the list then hit the "Clear permissions" .

 

Re-login.

HI Olivier,

 

Please try cleaning the desktop cache from:

 

File -> option and settings -> options -> data load -> data cache management options -> clear cache.

I'm still stuck with Account A dataflows while being logged as Account B, despite clearing the cache and closing/restarting PBI Desktop a couple of times.
