unless the terminal app supports remembering stuff like this on its own,
there's no way for the session manager to know about what's running in the

unfortunately, KDE has some .desktop files that should be marked as KDE-
specific such that other DEs can avoid including them, but they aren't.
xfdesktop has a blacklist, but i need to add items to it manually.  if
you can find the .desktop files that are generating these entries, open
a bug on bugzilla, and attach each .desktop file (separate attachments,
uncompressed, please).

if this is for the xfce iconbox, it's a bug in the relevant .desktop file.
are you using a language other than english?  it appears fine for me.
