True, but it needs to be tested again because it was loaded again. So I
consider the test as a result of the reload, and only indirectly of the
double call. Thus, I left it out of the change log.

I was thinking of it as double call, as calling once to the iterator, and
once again to the functions that are loaded. But sure, because of the
double load too (and the NULL check is only because of the load ;-)

Good point. (Which would have possibly been found in my more extensive
testing).
