as i explained. that actually cannot be the case. the animation is rendered in
that window. its in-canvas as part of the efm window and view... and thus if
efm window goes - all objects in it go etc. ... so my guess sis you mis-remember

restarting e restarts efm. its the same thing. you can close and open efm
windows. you can also unload the fileman module and load it. again. the module
just provides the emf window wrapper and desktop icons. the efm core that
handles listing dirs, the icons, their dnd and animation etc. is in e itself.
it is the same thing used for the file selector in e. that's efm. actually 2 efm
views (one for shortcuts/places, one for the directory content)
