Ah, gotcha.

Personally, I would want it to restart automatically in this case - because
it would be consistent and (particularly) for use as an alarm clock. But I
might have missed an earlier message giving a case where the opposite
behaviour would be desirable, feel free to restate such cases for my benefit
;-)
