depends on what gets upgraded (you *do* review the upgrades,
right?). If you've got some new core thing (kernel, xorg, udev, etc.)
then I'd make sure to review the changelogs to see what's up. For
example, recent xorg updates have been translations -- no biggie. But
if it was something core to the functioning of xorg, a reboot (or
restart of X) might be in order. Likewise with a kernel update.
