The old gets released when there no longer is any users currently
reading from it.

See storeSetPublicKey, it also makes the older copy private, which
will cause it to automatically get released when there is no users
(see storeSetPrivateKey).

Note that this only happens if the reload caused a new copy to be
downloaded. Most reload requests are just forced IMS queries.
