Ah ok. Since I'm in the process of developing my applet the simplest way
to restart it to test the session saving was to remove it from the panel
with Ctrl-C and then start it again.

I now tried instead to close my X session and then when I restarted GNOME
it remembered my settings.

Is this the way it is supposed to work? If it is, the session managment is
a bit, um, functionally challenged IMHO.

I can't believe I'm the first person to be surprised my this
behaviour? How have other solved this? With standard gnome functions or
something else?
