What has happened (from what it seems like anyways) is that the kernel caught a exception or some other problem with the graphics drivers and had reset everything. The GUI is rebuilt and then all the applications still running are loaded back up and reconnected to the GUI session like nothing happened.
With Wayland, and it's compositing-based windowing system, seems like this sort of thing should be possible.
that sounds way cool. I hope wayland ends up working that way because that sounds like it will be way more reliable in practice
