Recon does not free RE dll, can no longer rebuild without restarting Recon

When I last used the SDK it was possible to rebuild and install while Recon was running by deleting your RE, build/installing your RE, and then performing undo in Recon to reload the latest build.

Something seems to have changed since I last used the SDK, and Recon is not freeing the RE, ...


... the RE dll seems to be held onto by the active project, so I am able to close the project, build/install, and then reopen the project (without restarting Recon), so it's not a complete showstopper.

Resolved: The solution (thanks to DrNo) was to put it into a combinator (delete the whole combinator, not just the device).
