I can't reproduce your issue with a trivial test:

$ . ./sample
4.2.8(75)-maint
$ type foo
foo is a function
foo ()
{
    echo foo
}
$ ce sample [MODIFY SAMPLE HERE]
$ . ./sample
4.2.8(75)-maint
$ type foo
foo is a function
foo ()
{
    echo bar
}

Maybe run `set -x' before sourcing the modified file to see what's going on.
