It is normal because we bundle now the minimizer and presenter screen as
pre-registered extensions. This triggers an automatic restart of the
office during the first start.

One plan is to integrate both extension in the core directly because
they are more or less default features when we bundle them. The code is
from us and there is no demand to bundle it as extensions. The
extensions came from earlier days where some people had clever ideas in
mind ;-)
The integration in the core will also improve the startup performance
and will eliminate the overhead to bundle it as extensions, special
handling during the pack process and during the installation.

But again for now it is the correct behaviour.
