It is unclear to me what the underlying reason for this discrepancy is.  
Using (e.g.,) MS Word, I can save an MS Word document as Adobe PDF.  If 
the previously-saved version is open in Adobe Acrobat (or in Adobe 
Acrobat Reader), MS Word forces the PDF to close and then re-opens the 
newly-saved version.  It seems to me that the TeX sub-system ought to be 
able to accomplish the same thing.
