Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-12-12 11:46:53 EST
What happened here is that we moved the logout dialog from gnome-session to gnome-panel.  gnome-panel doesn't look at the setting anymore.

The UI element should probably be removed, since it doesn't do anything, and potentially get replaced with a "Save session now" button in the dialog.
