Bug Description

Binary package hint: metacity

I guess it's metacity that's meant to do this?

When I log out of an X/gnome session, with "automatically save session" set, and log back in again, only one of the previously running xterm instances comes up.

I just checked one of the files in ~/.metacity/sessions and there are multiple instances of xterm mentioned in there, at least.

the session is managed by gnome-session for GNOME (.gnome2/session) and the issue is probably xterm not registering correctly, reassigning

compare with

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=423961

(I looked to see if any of it can be fixed in xterm, but googling
on "metacity xtsessionid" found this). In turn that leads to

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=341286

So it does not look like xterm.
