Why stop the main loop and restart it?  Typically you'd setup the app, 
and start the main loop running for the duration.  Everything else is 
handled by the application's logic.

For example, you'd display the login toplevel window, and when it's 
satisfied, it can trigger the functionality which creates (or displays 
the pre-created but hidden) application window and dismisses the login
