Notepad++ asks if the file should be reloaded after manual reload

Using Notepad++ 7.8.5 (64-bit).
When monitoring log files, I hit
Alt-f-lto reload the log file (same as File → Reload from Disk), the file reloads, and then immediately prompts to ask if I want to reload it.
Testing with a slow moving log file. There are no changes to it between when I manually reload, and the prompt occurs.
The prompt only occurs when there is a change as of when I manually reload the file.
I don’t want to turn on silent update.
I think what’s probably happening is a quick focus change, causing the prompt prior to completing the manual reload.
If that’s the case, the solution would could be a way to reload the file without the tab losing focus.

npp has a callback FILEBEFORELOAD maybe this can/should be used
by npp internally in order to clear any new update notification received
at this point.
Do you by any chance use PythonScript plugin??
