Description Daniel Morris 2000-05-24 18:18:24 EDT
Invoking Settings->Save Current Session stores the applications, but not
their correct positioning/geometry. On login's, applications will all
live on virtual desktop 1. Sometimes they will be 'on top' of each other,
sometimes they may appear overlapping or not -- this is variable.

Reproduced on two 6.2 systems (NetFinity + Gateway Solo laptop).

To test:
Using default Gnome desktop, launch an app (gnome-term) on each of
the four desktops. Invoke Settings->Save Current Session, logout.
Login and voila, four gnome-terms all sitting on Desktop 1.

Variations on a theme are possible, by resizing the gnome-terms
before the Save, they will all appear at their default size.
