This is not the part of the code where I'm comfortable with, 
but I'm not sure auto reload is made to auto reload magic, but more to reload
normal modules. 

and IIRC, %load_ext does track wether an extension has been loaded and avoid 
loading it if it has not been unloaded. 
Can you try if %reload_ext  works ?

Also, you are welcome to add your extension to 

if you wish.
