"Being replaced while running" is a scenario very few projects test for.
Every rule has an exception. Google Chrome (and Chromium) are quite explicitly developed for such usage. Of course "silent upgrades" are their core design decision thus they have to support them. Other projects... are less forgiving. Our Linux support team likes to push upgrades every time you connect [loaned] laptop to a corp network. Firefox often becomes unusable as a result :-( Usually restart fixes it, but once or twice (in last five years) it corrupted profile beyond repair.
