google cached old title

After changing the page title google reverted back to an older cached title. Even though the page has been cached several times since since the original title was changed, the homepage SERP title does not change, even though the cached version of the data does, although if you search for the a different keyword or phrase, such as coolest guy on the planet, it does show up with the new title.
The usual common advice of using the noodp meta tag is not relevant as this webpage is not listed in DMOZ.

The only explanation I have is that as Google uses multiple data servers, 2 different titles are cached in two different data centers.

It should take a few days to sync the servers.
