Dear all,

How to do it:

My org-latex-preview related config:

(with-eval-after-load 'org 
     (add-to-list 'org-latex-packages-alist '("" "stmaryrd" t)) 
     (add-to-list 'org-latex-packages-alist '("" "tikz-cd" t)) 
     (add-to-list 'org-latex-packages-alist '("" "thisisastupidtestfile" t)) 
     (setq org-latex-create-formula-image-program 'dvisvgm) 
     (setq org-format-latex-options 
           (plist-put org-format-latex-options :scale 0.80)))


in some org file (`hello.org`), add this latex formula:
`\(\calT \llbracket \tau_H \rrbracket \)`
Invoke `org-latex-preview` (`C-c C-x C-l`).
Open `thisisastupidtestfile.sty` which is situated in the same directory as our `hello.org` file.
Change the definition of: `\newcommand{\calT}{\mathcal{T}}` to `\newcommand{\calT}{\mathcal{K}}` and invoke `org-latex-preview`.

Result: There is no way you can have the image regenerated.

Analysis: the image is associated to the latex input through some hash function (see below). Editing `thisisastupidtestfile.sty` doesn't change the arguments of the hash function, consequently the image isn't regenerated.

I understand org-latex-preview images are associated to latex expression through some hash function:
(sha1 (prin1-to-string
       (list org-format-latex-header
	     forbuffer value fg bg)))

Now if I edit my custom sty file, the output of the hash function won't change, and therefore the generated image won't change neither.

Note: I haven't been able to compute the return value of the hash function for my latex expression, because I can't figure out what the arguments actually are, specifically `forbuffer`, `fg` and `bg`, but the above reasoning seems sound.
Note: Removing specifically the images looking like the image associated with the latex expression that refuses to be regenerated, using some file manager, and then invoking `org-latex-preview`, does the trick, but it's impractical.
