This "restart" is most likely a crash. This can happen if for example you have
the nvidia binary driver installed and then update xorg/mesa as these packages
overwrite some of the libraries that the nvidia driver installed.

Reporter, one of many "found old cruft, trying to find out what's going on".
Could you please confirm that you can reproduce this with latest update of Rawhide?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2007-11-03 12:30:13 EDT
Comment #1 says this no longer happens..
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-11-06 10:54:29 EST
And I have no idea, why haven't catch this. Thanks.
