Restarting calibre passes filenames

Bug Description

If Calibre is restarted (by the Calibre process itself), all arguments passed to the original process are passed to the new process. This probably makes sense for options, but I don't think it does for files.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start calibre by passing it an ebook (e.g. "calibre mybook.epub")
2. Modify a configuration variable which requires a restart (e.g. change the interface font)
3. Apply settings, and click "Restart calibre now"

After restart, Calibre will re-attempt to add the ebook that was originally passed.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
