Will it restart again if you simply log out and log in again instead of
rebooting Linux?

If so, try this:
1) log out and login again.
2) from the console, start a new shell (run the 'bash' command 
   with no parameters) and then run Quickbooks.
3) When it has exited (with the usual crash) run the "ps" command
   and let us know what you see. If two copies of bash are shown,
   run the "exit" command. running "ps" again should now show a
   single copy of bash.
4) will Quickbooks run again it run again if you repeat steps 2 and 3?
