Automatic session saving is disabled, but the logout prompt has
session saving enabled by default, and I don't see a way to keep users
from enabling it if I disable it?
Thanks for the Autostart tip; I'll do that.

Oops, sorry about that. Version 188.8.131.52, as provided by CentOS Extras
for CentOS 4.2. I haven't installed any extra panel plugins, so I
just have whatever is provided by default. (Are the graphical pager
and system clock plugins? I'm not very familiar with XFCE, sorry.)
