What commands did you use to repro this?

Also, is there a stack trace you could add?

Restarting unity from a terminal with "unity --replace" or "setsid unity" leads to unity being stopped and not restarted. See screen pic attached below.

I added a log option and the contents are just what the screencap shows:
compiz (core) - Info: Loading plugin: core
compiz (core) - Info: Starting plugin: core
compiz (core) - Error: Another window manager is already running on screen: 0
compiz (core) - Info: Stopping plugin: core
compiz (core) - Info: Unloading plugin: core

The syslog contains these entries at the very end which may or may not be useful:

Nov 13 20:26:20 nexus7-265143b8 gnome-session[879]: WARNING: Application 'compiz.desktop' killed by signal 9

I cannot confirm this on my dev laptop, only on the nexus7.

given two people are able to reproduce the issue, i'll go ahead and mark it as confirmed for unity.
