Database is not automatically reloaded after deleting no-global-site-packages.txt


  1. Create a new python project
  2. Create a new virtual env.
  3. On disk, delete the virtual env's Lib/no-global-site-packages.txt
  4. In solution explorer, you'll see that the list of packages for the virtual env now includes all global packages
  5. Try to import one of the global modules, IntelliSense won't include any of them in the suggested completions
Workaround: Close and reopen the solution and you'll get the completions.

Renamed the issue to more accurately describe the issue (the old name matched something else we do, so it was more confusing).
