Description of problem:
Platform: Fedora 9 / GNOME / x86-64
When session management is enabled, the following issues are observed:
1) gnome-terminal is not restarted upon login (several terminals in several
workspaces were running at logout time)
2) thunderbird is not restarted upon login (was running at logout time)
3) firefox, ekiga and gaim are restarted, and forced into Workspace #1 (I had
previously placed them in other workspaces, before logging out)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up 9 workspaces, each with 2-3 gnome terminals.
2. run firefox, thunderbird, xchat each in their own workspace.
3. run ekiga and gaim, minimized on GNOME panel
only firefox, ekiga, gaim restarted. and all in workspace #1, not in proper
the same layout I had, when I logged out.

I agree, it is an annoyance to have session saving but to have most everything restore on workspace #1 as opposed to having the windows positioned and spread among workspaces as you've left them.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
