This is probably unrelated but it reminded me of a bug I now tracked down.
When using "save_as" in file_io.lua a check should be added to make
sure that no buffer with the same path and name is already open,
otherwise you get two buffers with the same filename and the reloading
problem as you switch buffers.
So after the dialog, line 276 in file_io.lua
for i=1, #_BUFFERS do
  if _BUFFERS[i].filename == utf8_filename then
    -- some error message to give the user the possibility
    -- to close the other buffer or try saving as again with another name
