Just for completeness. If you want to get rid of any saved session, 
first disable it in xfce4-session-settings → [ ]  automatically save 
session on logout and after that, delete your current session either by 
the session tab at the same application or by logging out and deleting 

Together with devilspie this makes really fun.
