You probably still have those files open.  I would log completely out as
my user, log in as root, go to runlevel 1 (by typing "init 1"), and then
go back to runlevel 2 (by typing "init 2") after logging back in.  This
will restart all your processes.  It's kind of like rebooting without
losing your uptime.
