Well, if it dies the user will see bugbuddy or the absence of the NM
icon... to get a working system he will probably need to see
logout/login or reboot. Or start it from the terminal or Alt+F2..

Btw, you're screwed too if dbus, hal or nm crashes. Short answer is
really that we obviously need to make sure it doesn't crash for most
users... so I don't think we need to restart it.. plus having it restart
automatically may be counterproductive to the goal of having a stable
non-crashing applet :-)
