Hmmmm, I didn't notice before that the changed indication went away.

Interesting question, if the buffer has the same content as the file
(and we know that because we just reloaded it) but it has an undo
history, is it changed or not?  I dunno.

Also I missed your previous suggestion to move reload to the edit
menu, agree with that, though I am not sure about changing the name.
