Okay I've had a look at gnotepad [and refuse point blank to install gxedit 
on general principles for having a sucky configure ;) ] and this seems to be 
a problem not with gnome-session, but with gnotepad itself.

In win_session_save() which is the gnotepad callback for the save_yourself
signal, it is using the restart command with an extra option '--ldsession'
which doesn't appear to work; in fact [for me anyway] just prints out the 
following [if I type the restart command at the prompt] -
gnotepad+ 1.3.3 (June-07-2000)

And indeed, if you hack the session file to remove this option, gnotepad 
will be restored.

Okay...You've got to be careful here [and there still might be some sort of 
buggyness in the code] but you must make sure that the Autosave option in
the control-center is turned off, so that you don't save on logout. I'm 
going to check through the code today and make sure it's all working :/
