That's absolutely clear. I have a setup like in the TestCases with a signal
object waiting for the reload signal. But the first reload signal is released by
the CCL itself without waiting for the compiling. And IMO this is wrong.

Yes, it does. But at the same time it releases a "hasReloaded" event - before it
is actually setup correctly.

As I wrote above the first "hasReloaded" happens already by the CCL itself at
the end of its start() method. The second "hasReloaded" is the one to go at the
moment. But this looks more like a bug than a reliable feature.

Still the same like on Friday.
