The problem happens only when the 'Use RAM Disks' is changed in system_advanced_misc.php but box is not rebooted. The solution will be change system_advanced_misc.php to:

1. Detect when this option is changed
2. Ask user a confirmation before save saying box will reboot immediately
3. If he confirms, save and reboot

Implemented as requested. If the "Use Ramdisk" setting is changed by the user they will be prompted to confirm on save. If they select "Yes" the change will be saved and the firewall will reboot.
