I guess the session file wasn't ok, most probably a client was missing a
RestartCommand. Since this file should only be edited by the session manager,
I had no check for session data loaded from that file. I added that check now,
please check if its still around. And if you - or anybody else - encounters
such a problem the next, please save the session file from
~/.cache/xfce4-session/, start the session manager with XFSM_VERBOSE set and
send both the session file and the file ~/.xfce4-session.verbose-log to
xfce4-dev@ (in addition a backtrace of the crash would also help fixing the
