development mode: boss_app_info does not reflect any of the newly added/loaded controllers #323

While in development mode, once you add a new controller, it is not added to the boss_app_info record. Everything works fine, but if somebody wants to list all the controllers provided by a specified application using the boss_web:application_info/1 (for example for dynamic menu generation), the new controller won't be on the list until the full CB restart.

The problem was originally reported here:

if you send the boss_web process a timeout msg it will reset things correctly

This is causing an infinate loop, I am removing this for now, if you want to reload the data in dev mode for now you can do it manually by running the command "boss_web ! timeout." from the repl
