After closing any open collections, a bigger problem remained: if you try to open an existing collection after changing the gliserver or library path urls, then you are still shown the collections in the previous Greenstone DL server. The changes were not propagating.

Took Katherine's advise on this and did forced a restart of GLI whenever GS is remote and the gliserver or library path url are changed by the user through Preferences.
