If you don't know about the common dialogs and don't know what you could
get into if you don't restart, you're not an 'experienced' user in this
matter :-)

Maybe a FAQ, but I'd rather have users only not do the restart who are
subscribed to this list and get the information from there.

Just search the mailing lists for "bug" and "reboot"/"restart" and
you'll discover a lot of "BUG!!!!!" reports which only happen because
users haven't restarted.
