There is a chance, it has nothing to do specifically with dnsmasq.
1. Try flushing your workstation's DNS cache, "ipconfig /flushdns".
2. When dnsmasq is restarted, it re-reads /etc/hosts file. If that's the 
only way dnsmasq knows about the new hosts, the behavior you describe is 
expected. Consider using DHCP-DNS update (dnsmasq does it in a very 
smooth and natural way) or assigning the IP-hostname binding for your 
VM/CT statically.
