Default Re: Two installer bugs

That's not necessarily true - if X crashed in the middle of such a "refresh" installation or if it was run stand-alone (i.e. without a session manager), it would not recover. It's also possible that the console isn't restored correctly in this case, which would probably look just like a system crash to many users. I'm not sure I understand why X can't be shut down temporarily as part of the maintenance updates, e.g. right before the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installation.
