The "restart required" bug seems to still be affecting people. In my research on this I came across a workaround which worked for us. However, we could have been saved 5-10 man-hours of time discussing the implications of this and doing research on how we might fix it. Details of the work around can be found here: https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/TC-3125
Because this cost us so much time, I want to recommend thatti.android.bug2373.finishfalseroot be true by default. Are there any downsides to doing that? What are they?
