It turns out that the problem only occurs when I switch between files 
belonging to different projects (or so it seems.) I didn't think about 
it at first, but when I noticed the problem, I was alternating between a 
file belonging to a library and another representing the main part of an 
application using the library, where the library and application are 
defined as separate projects. The cmake command I'm seeing is actually 
related to neither of those, i.e. it belongs to a 3rd project that's 
also open.

I'm assuming that I'm still not supposed to get restarts like this, so a 
bug report has been filed.
