Programs open at login even though they were closed before previous logout

Description of problem:
When logging in, three emacs windows and a terminal window ALWAYS open. No matter what the state of the session was when closing the previous session.
"Save session" was unchecked from the Sessions preferences window and we could not see emacs or the terminal window in the list of startup programs.
However, there was a file ~/.gnome2/session which had these four entries. Removing them fixed the startup.
My theory is that unchecking the "save session" will leave the current session file untouched. This seems like an error as it is very hard to get rid of the windows that keep opening on login unless you know exactly where to look and what to do.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in
1. Make sure "save session" setting is ON
2. Open some windows
3. Log out
4. Log in
5. Turn OFF "save session" setting
6. Log out
7. Log in
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
