I can't figure it out either, but I haven't really looked deeply into it.

As far as I can tell it just doesn't work: I guess #initialize is only called when the class is new or maybe when its definition is changed, maybe when the #initialize method changes, but certainly not all the time when you load new(er) versions of methods of that class. Maybe that is too much to expect, I don't know, it would be handy.

So when your #initialize calls say #initializeConstants and only that method is changed, you have a problem.

Maybe somebody else knows ?
