I think what Mike was trying to say (albeit, not very diplomatically),
is that what you saw was probably just the interface redrawing (which it
will do whenever you come out of the interface configuration settings).
This is not, however, the entire application restarting itself (I'm not
sure this is even possible on Linux - I've certainly never seen it
done) which is what's required for more major interface changes to
take place.
