I've got a problem with xfce4-session shutdown - i have a timeout (60s) on shutdown and my session is not saved (restored?) probably. 

Reproduce with: 
- start empty xfce4-session 
- start firefox
- start gedit and type something to have unsaved changes
- do a xfce4-logout  ("/usr/bin/xfce4-session-logout --logout")
=> 60s timeout, then logout. incomplete session at startup (no gedit, no xfwm4 by session manager).

Session works fine, if: 
- firefox not running or
- gedit hat no unsaved changes or
- gedit is not running

Seems that gedit does not get any shutdown message, if firefox is also running. 
I've switched "gnome compatibility mode" to "on".

Problem occures with up-to-date opensuse 11-4 (with X11:xfce repository) and with my Xubuntu 11.10 "Oneric Ocelot".
