I think the point that brought it about is that you do not have to
reboot to get Enigmail running, at the most logging out and logging back
in will work (if even required, I don't believe I have ever done more
than simply stopping Thunderbird before installing the package). A
reboot will get it working, but is more than is needed. You generally
will only need to reboot for changes to the kernel, which will often
modify your menu.lst also.

There is nothing wrong with turning off your computer at night, it is
very common (not everyone cares to brag about their uptime :) )
