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


Does the  desktop environment not save your session on logout, thereby recreating it for you on login? This won't work as well with firefox though.
