[AMBER-Developers] Update question

I'm pretty sure the answer to this is "it shouldn't cause trouble", but a user asked me, so I want to be sure.

Let's say someone is running a really long job using amber11's sander or pmemd or some other routine likely to be run for a really long time. Is there any chance that updating amber11 will cause any trouble for that run? I think no. I think these programs, like most others, find all the data they need at the start, and the executable is loaded into active memory, and the version of the program on the disk is ignored thereafter until the program is called again. Yes? No?
