I've seen similar things happen before.

It is possible - at least for someone of my lowly skills - that when 
updating s/w without rebooting, some things don't get completely 
reloaded after a simple service restart, that DO get completely reloaded 
upon a reboot.

I always reboot after any major updates, just to make sure that a server 
will *survive* a reboot, not because it is required.
