Is the environment variable $SESSION_MANAGER set?

This is probably due to gnome-session (mis-)behaviour:

My test client gets a "Die" message from the xsm server and within a few tens of milliseconds receives an ICE io error (as the server has quit or broken the connection). According to https://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.7/doc/libSM/SMlib.html#Sending_a_Die_Message the server should wait for clients to close the connection.
