This is false and a major misunderstanding of the vulnerability.

1) the vulnerability is just during initialisation of bash. Once it is
running it is beyond the vulnerable stage and needs no restarting
2) in a CGI of #!/bin/bash or for a system call with any other language for
CGI bash gets executed on demand... It does not do what you say...
