Bug Description

I recently received a compiz crash report notification from apport and in the dialog I was asked if I wanted to restart compiz. Given that I was actually seeing the dialog, I was in a desktop environment and compiz was already running. I naturally chose not to restart it and I wonder what would have happened had I chosen to.

We failed to consider applications which are automatically restarted. The restart button should only be shown if we can't find a pid for the same binary.
