Thanks for the prompt reply and apologies for attaching my enquiry to the Lubuntu-users Digest message. When it comes to mailing lists, I don't quite understand how Thunderbird works. 

Is there something unusual about those packages or is this a change in policy? It has been my experience since 6.06 that, unlike Windows, Linux usually does not need a restart with software updates. I don't know about other people, but once I get my desktop layout the way I want it, I'm in no hurry to restart and some of my PCs run for several days or even months without a restart.
