I recently disabled “legacy” (X11R5) session management in xfce4-session in
Debian, and it seems that this revealed some kind of bug.

A Debian user (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=751725)
reported that his session was not saved anymore (he tried rxvt and various
x11-apps). It seems that only Xfce-based apps (I guess linked against

Any pointer on how to debug this further is welcome.
