Actually, I'm with him here.....why, in multiple releases, has this bug not
been fixed?  Rebooting or deleting files:  either one is annoying and
shouldn't have to happen at all, especially after two releases.  That he
doesn't know it can be fixed by deleting some files to avoid a reboot is
secondary to the fact that he would have to worry about it to begin with.
