If you have a lua file open and focused and then reset the lua state,
the lua module is reloaded since the file is open. But if you have a
cpp file open in another buffer, resetting the lua state will not
reload the cpp module until that buffer is refocused or another cpp
file loaded.

I'll do this later today. It's a good suggestion.
