I can't speak for Les or Kanwar, but my problem is not with logging out
but sometimes resuming 'suspended' sessions and that is probably my
biggest frustration as I have a fairly well defined workspace with a
terminal with 5 shells in my first window - specific directories and one
with a root shell and one with a root shell on a separate server, the
second window with phppgadmin, the third window with Quanta Plus - my
primary development software and the 4 workspace, Firefox with several
tabs. When I cannot resume the session, I have to in essence, recreate
it though I have some shortcuts to get things back to where they were,
it's never the same as I had left my suspended session and it's
frustrating.
