[IPython-dev] It seems that extensions in the cwd do not take precedence in notebooks

I have a directory full of notebooks and I dropped the version_information
magic py file in the directory so that I can use it in the notebooks. I
then modified the py file and the modifications did not reflect in the
notebook. Turns out I had a ~/.ipython/extensions/version_information.py in
place and the notebooks were using that instead of the one in the directory
with the notebooks. I would have thought that the one in the cwd would take
precedence. Why is that?

Also, how do you find where a magic is loading from? For python modules you
simply look at __file__.
