This is obscure, but I thought I would report it.  The following sequence of
commands, which is designed to trigger a warning about reloading functions,
corrupts the symbol table.

sh> ./run-octave
octave:1> x = localtime (100);
Hit Ctrl-Z to suspend Octave and return to shell prompt.
sh> touch src/DLD-FUNCTIONS/time.cc
sh> make
## This updates the timestamp on time.oct
## Now resume Octave
sh> fg
octave:2> clear -f localtime
octave:3> y = localtime (200);
error: Invalid call to time.  Correct usage is:

 -- Loadable Function: SECONDS = time ()
octave:4> help localtime
`localtime' is a function from the file

 -- Loadable Function: SECONDS = time ()
     Return the current time as the number of seconds since the epoch.
     The epoch is referenced to 00:00:00 CUT (Coordinated Universal
     Time) 1 Jan 1970.  For example, on Monday February 17, 1997 at
     07:15:06 CUT, the value returned by `time' was 856163706.

     See also: strftime, strptime, localtime, gmtime, mktime, now,
     date, clock, datenum, datestr, datevec, calendar, weekday

As you can see, localtime becomes aliased to the function with the same name
as the .oct file.
