Interesting, I regularly restart NVDA and I don't recall ever seeing it from that.  Do you have any add-ons?

I'll get you one, but I must say that I have rarely NOT had this happen when
doing an NVDA restart.
It is just the way of things.
Since it happens on all of my systems, I assumed it was an error with slave or
helper, and couldn't be avoided.
