That's really odd, because I'm also using Maverick and the standard build,
and once you said this I tried logging out and back in and my xterm and
chromium locations were successfully restored. But previously, several
times, they weren't getting saved. Probably over 5 or more logouts.
I think what might have been happening was that somehow the wrong logout
button was in my panel? Because before the logout button was a o with a |
in it, you know the international power-button logo. Now it's a green guy
running through a white door.
The thing that seems to have changed was that earlier I logged in and my
panel was entirely gone. I logged out and back in, and it was still gone.
So I manually ran "xfce4-panel" and my panel came back, though looked
slightly different in color, but it still had my clock customizations, and
the little mouse next to "Applications"...
But, everything I clicked was making noise through my speakers, drums and
stuff. So something obviously changed. If I wanted drums when I clicked
buttons, I'd use Rock Band for my pointing device. :-)
I really don't know what changed, but obviously some things changed and at
that point xterms are being saved.
So, thanks for whatever you did. Must be your mojo. :-)
