      When requiring a module nodejs style, using index as default, requiring the same file using different paths results in different modules.

      i.e. require('/test') vs require('/test/index')

      Steps to recreate:

      1. Create a new Titanium app using the CLI
      2. Create a new file: /lib/test/index.js

      var test = {};
      module.exports = test;
      test.x = 1;

      3. Open the file controllers/index.js
      4. Add the following lines:

      var test = require('/test');
      console.error('test.x: ' + test.x);

      5. Run app: appc ti build --platform ios --target simulator --log-level trace --liveview
      6. App should start successfully.
      7. The following should show in console log: test.x: 1
      8. Change the file: /lib/test/index.js

      var test = {};
      module.exports = test;
      test.x = 2;

      9. The following should show in console log: test.x: 2 but instead the output is the same as before: test.x: 1

      If you use the following in /controllers/index.js, it works as expected:

      var test = require('/test/index');
      console.error('test.x: ' + test.x);

      Another test that fails (and doesn't require a recompile or restart) is this:

      var test1 = require('/test');
      console.log('test1.x: ' + test1.x);
      test1.x = 2;
      var test2 = require('/test/index');
      console.log('test2.x: ' + test2.x);

      The output of this with LiveView off is:

      test.x: 1
      test.x: 2

      But with LiveView on, the output is this:

      test.x: 1
      test.x: 1
