What's the point of deleting the .pyc files? Unless you have problems with your
computer clock, I see absolutely no need for this.

The problem Siegfried mentioned sounded like a misunderstanding of the way
reload works on modules to me (it cannot work with "from ... import ..." and of
course it cannot magically clone, update and rebind existing references).
