Need to restart Explorer after PDF title added

After I have added a title to a PDF (using BeCyPDFMetaEdit), the title is not displayed until Explorer is restarted (in Windows 7). 

It is a pain to have to restart Explorer. Is there a workaround for this?

I've tested it on my side and I've seen that BeCyPDFMetaEdit keeps the file locked after saving it, so Explorer (and so PDFPropertyExtension) can't read it.

When I closed BeCyPDFMetaEdit (or opened another PDF file), the edited one became readable again.
It only needs an F5 into Explorer window to show the updated tags.
