I too was a bit concerned when it restarted half way through the first restart...
Any idea why on earth it would need to do that?

It usually means a firmware update was involved.

I'm not sure if there are now other cases with 10.5. But historically, double restarts were done when libSystem was updated. But double restarts seem to be a lot more common on the 10.5 updates, so perhaps this policy applies to other essential libraries.
