Yes.  The file gets read in once (the first time you try to use
a shortcut), and the shortcut info stays in memory.  there doesn't
seem to be a mechanism to cause it to be reloaded.  From a look
at the code, it seems that the shortcut info stays around
even after a LYNXCFG://reload - I haven't tried it.  Some strange
things could happen if you change the jump file name, and/or
use additional jump files (with a key - explained after the
KEYMAP section in lynx.cfg).

Well, the HTML view of the file (what you normally load with '?')
does act like a bookmark (or any other HTML file) - it can get
reloaded etc.  The problem is that for shortcuts Lynx has a
different view of the jump file contents which isn't kept in
synch with the HTML view.  So no, there currently is no way to
reload the file the way you mean it.
