This is because you are running nginx.exe as a different user then nginx.exe
is running under, its the same issue when you run 'nginx -s reload' while
nginx is running as a service (which is a different user) see the FAQ on the
project website which describes a workaround to this problem.

If you need to test a config on the same machine then make a copy of the
environment in some other folder so that the PID file does not conflict with
the running version. Or stop nginx, run your test and start nginx.

I will have a look at

I'm not going to remove modules unless they are bugged beyond repair.

Adding/removing modules on the fly is on the long term feature list
