Jerry -- I agree that "rebooting" linux if often not necessary.
including in the case being discussed.
However, what you didn't say, but i suspect would agree with,
is at times it is prudent to switch to single user mode,
An example could be when changing glibc
especially if it is necessary to go back to an earlier rpm.
I am sure you can think of other examples.
In the case of "gui problems', we often solve them
by opening a telenet connection via are local lan,
which saves the need for rebooting.
I am sure you know lots of other ways to
accomplish the same thing, which I guess is your point
all a long. Think before rebooting:
Is this "reboot" really necessary ???
