	Does it make that distinction? It says "restart" (tsk, tsk! Evil 
Empire jargon!) and shows a power button. I don't see a difference. 

	Of course I'd much rather just log out and back in. Am I missing 
some obvious tip-off? Or do you have to have Alpha Plus Technoid level 
savvy about every app it marks before you can tell?

	If I make it my default to log out and back in, am I going to 
stub both big toes and my nose the first time it isn't enough?

	Incidentally, btw, etc. : Bodhidsattva and Bodhidharma (as in the 
classic koan) I know from reading about Zen forty years ago; but bodhi as 
a linux app is completely new to me, afaik. The google hits I get are 
either dead ends ("No Such Project" lots of times) or over my head. It 
sounds as if it were another name for package-kit.

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
