Also true. The file you specify is copied to uploads/tx_felogin/ and 
used from then on.

No, the upload path is defined in the flexform, so the files are 
expected to live in uploads/tx_felogin.

What you should do according to the author of felogin is to remove the 
template from the flexform and set your template again in the flexform. 
Then a new copy of your updated template is created and used by felogin.

Other solution would be to leave the flexform field empty and set in 
plugin.tx_felogin_pi1.templateFile = fileadmin/.../felogin.tmpl
In this case felogin will directly use your template.
