With 'gb.web.gui', each session is a process, and is identified by a 
cookie on the browser.

If you don't remove the cookie by hand on the browser, or the cookie 
"database" on the server (located in a temporary directory inside 
'/tmp'), the application won't update.

I usually close all browser windows and tabs before running a project 
again after something have been modified.

The solution would be creating a custom browser with a WebView control 
just for debugging the 'gb.web.gui' programs. I will think about that.
