The session manager knows nothing (read N O T H I N G) about virtual 
desktops and the like, simply because the XSM protocol doesn't include 
it. Thats the job of the application and/or the window manager.

Again, the session manager knows nothing about konsole or any other KDE 
app. In fact it doesn't even know that its a KDE app. If KDE apps don't 
work correctly w/ other session managers than ksmserver, file a bug 
report on kde.org!

I know this problem and I know the cause: Konqueror is restarted indeed, 
but Konqueror doesn't display its window. So the session manager does 
its job, but Konqueror failes.

Please stop complaining about the `session manager and KDE' here. I told 
you several times, that its not the session manager's fault. You are 
basicly reporting KDE bugs here again and again (atleast you failed to 
prove that its a problem with Xfce) and it gets boring and makes me 
angry. If you continue like this, chances are high that your mails will 
be simply ignored in the future!
