I thought that when a program started it was sent a local save.  It

I couldn't find code to save the session when a program exits.

What about introducing a new variable to set the toggle in trash mode?
Then there wouldn't be any reason to ever turn trash mode off, would
there?  (Assuming global saves without exit respected this new setting
as well.)

This would be a nice thing for the new GUI initiative to resolve: how
sessions should be handled by default, and the various cases.
