Don't restart NTP when changing the GUI language
Changing the language in the GUI, new and old alike, restarts ntpd for some reason.
Some have described this behavior as "This is a bit like the light over the stove turning on when you flush the toilet.".
Example: In FreeNAS-11-MASTER-201803240729, changing the language to German and back to English results in:
Apr 14 23:46:41 backup ntpd: ntpd exiting on signal 15 (Terminated) Apr 14 23:46:41 backup ntpd: ntpd 4.2.8p11-a (1): Starting Apr 14 23:48:22 backup ntpd: ntpd exiting on signal 15 (Terminated) Apr 14 23:48:23 backup ntpd: ntpd 4.2.8p11-a (1): Starting
DrKK found this as far back as 9.10.2 and I have confirmed it on both 9.10.2 and the 11.2 nightly mentioned above. Again, both GUIs do this.

Over to William first to see if this is middleware.
Eric: please reproduce then attach a debug to this ticket so we can see what is happening on the middleware side.
