Adding a shortcut to save empty session might keep people away from
forums complaining about automatically launched applications on
startup, which was your concern in the original message.

A user may have two sessions: One session which he/she wants to save
each time on logout and another session that he/she does not want to
save, but keep empty. Settings in Setting Manager are same for
whichever session. It would be excessive awkward to modify the
setting each time there.
