Who has enough knowledge about the function to do it?

I *think* it should restore the state of the character in which it was
after creation (or after it has been placed on a display list). This
would make sense for the button instance which holds a list of
character instances. These character instances are kept permanently in
memory, even if the character is not visible on stage (for example,
becomes visible on mouseover). Upon mouseover the character becomes
part of the stage and is restart()ed to act as if it were just

This is how the button instance seems to work. However, this is just
my assumption and I can't document that function before someone else
confirms it.

What do you mean with "for the GUI" ??

Does the restart command of the GUI call "restart()" ?
