Add-ins that share same custom library

We have some standard library projects that are shared among multiple different add-in projects.  As I have been bouncing back and forth getting these different add-ins ready to go into production, I realized that when I would make a change to one of the libraries, and then recompile a specific add-in, it would crash at runtime saying it couldn???t find the method or something of that nature.  It seems that it is using the DLL from another add-in it has loaded already.

1) Is there a way to tell it to use the DLL that is bundled within its own add-in?
2) If I increment the build version number on each DLL with each test deploy will it then use the right one? This doesn't seem to work :(

Is there any easy way to not have to re-deploy all our add-ins when just wanting to update one with a small tweak/update in a shared dll? 

Thanks a lot for any info.
