I'm not saying a reboot is required after every TW upgrade - and I'm
also not working towards the goal that this would become a nescessity.
But in this case I can well see that filesystem removed a link that was
in place before and no other package came 'after' to take care of
putting it back in place again.

tks, I'm wondering why it *just* became necessary as this is the first
time I have had to recreate the link, and I sometimes go days with running
processes using deleted files. but I probably should not update as
frequently as I do :(.
