Not to be a jerk, but it pops up a window that says as much before login
That said, I always thought that was a pain. Debian does it slightly
better in that it tells you that this is now your default session.
I never understood this. What is the reasoning behind NOT simply
logging in with the last session that was used? Why does the user even
need to be informed? S/he goes through the trouble of selecting from a
list, which typically includes about 2-3 mouse clicks. Can't the user
be trusted to know what they are doing even sometimes?
I never thought it was that big a deal, but I'm seizing this opportunity
to whine about it.
