Description

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[2297]: ntpd exiting on signal 15 (Terminated)
Apr 14 23:46:41 backup ntpd[61877]: ntpd 4.2.8p11-a (1): Starting
Apr 14 23:48:22 backup ntpd[61878]: ntpd exiting on signal 15 (Terminated)
Apr 14 23:48:23 backup ntpd[62371]: 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.
