Workflow for developing R packages with compiled code

Hey all,
I might be doing this totally wrong but is it normal that I need to restart R before installing an updated version of my package which contains compiled code. This means that I can't simply "install and restart" to test a new package version. The issue when I do is that the shared libraries are being used and I can't simply modify them.

Does anyone run into this slightly annoying pattern of having to restart and install and restart? Does anyone care to share a smarter workflow pattern that they might use?

edit: I just tested it in a linux environment and install and restart works perfectly but in a windows environment it doesn't
