This is one of the problems with reload. In that case you would need to  
reload(dvTime) and then re-import all the functions. Using module.function  
avoids that particular problem, as you have noticed.
With classes it gets worse: any previously created instances will still be  
instances of the *old* class. I think that there are some recipes in the  
Python Cookbook about this problem.
