sorry if I got it wrong, it was my memory of the issue being discussed
at the test day, not something I got from Bugzilla. Obviously I should
check the log next time. :/

We may well end up without a separate 'Reboot' menu item or button.
I don't think the world will end.

I try to avoid cross-posting between MLs as much as I can because
there's inevitably people who aren't subscribed to both so some replies
only go to one or the other and you wind up with diverging threads and
it's confusing. But will do!
