Thanks for your response and the referenced link!  What called my
attention about this is that according to the c:help() function c:l()
is for both loading and reloading.  Now, I see that from the
documentation this is only the case if the given module (e.g., math)
is marked/identified as old.  Hence, this reloading is only for module
upgrades, as need be.  AFAIK now, then the only way to manually reload
any module is to first use code:delete/1 and then c:l/1 again or
code:load_file/1.  What do you know!  Then again, if you know of a one
step way, please let me know.

Can't load module 'math' that resides in sticky dir

...I get this error message. It's not particular to any module.  From
the error, there seems to be a problem with a stcky bit somewhere. 
Although I don't remember having this problem before, who knows, maybe
it's just my install.  Has anyone run into this issue recently?
