New feature for absent-minded users: reboot reminder

From: KlasNordberg <klas.nordberg_at_gmail.com>

Here's what I did: I updated to tortoise 1.5.2 except for the final
and requested reboot. There was simply some other thing I needed to
fix before the reboot. This thing turned into several things and then
I had to go to lunch, and some meetings after lunch, and .... Well,
eventually it was time to leave for the day and I wanted to commit all
my changes to the repository. At this point, I had of course forgot
all about the reboot and was convinced that the update was history.

Here is what happened: Nothing works! Both commit and update behave
erratic to say the least. After a rather lengthy troubleshooting,
including writing (but not sending) a bug report, it finally dawned on
me that I had forgot about the reboot. Rebooting solved the problem!

Here is what I suggest should happen: When the tortoise client has
been updated, but the requested reboot not been made, and the user
tries to use the client, it should give a friendly message about
rebooting instead of offering the normal menus and windows.

I realize that the above story says more about my own state of mind
than about the tortoise software, but I also believe that computer
software should, as far as possible, support my mental
deficiencies :-)
