IIUC, this is about multiple sessions on a single machine owned by
different users -- which is different than what I'm talking about.  My
problem is running multiple sessions (console + VNC) from a *single*
user.  The problem is that the gnome panel is trying its best to keep
all instances connected: the geometry of one session leaks to others,
and killing the panel in one session makes it want to restart itself
in another.

Maybe my horribly stupid idea for a solution will demonstrate what I
wanted: I tried running

  HOME=~/.vnc gnome-session

to get my VNC gnome to be disconnected from the console session.  It
didn't work because there are many other communication channels which
gnome components were using behind my back.  (Unsurprisingly, this was
a catastrophe on many other levels, but the idea should be clear...)
