This annoying mis-feature of ATM has been fixed a while ago in
the Windows version (after serious lobbying and complaining).
For example, you no longer have to reboot after
installing a modified font (you can imagine how painful that is
when you are trying to fix a font that doesn't work in ATM!).  
Maybe it's time Adobe fixed the Mac version also :-).
