1.41.1. RHBA-2010:0709: bug fix update
The gnome-session package manages the GNOME desktop session. It starts up other core components of GNOME and handles logouts and saving of the sessions.
* gnome-session, also referred to as the GNOME Session Manager, remembers information such as which applications were open at the time of logout (among other session details), and restores these applications upon logging in again. The session properties dialog which ships with gnome-session previously presented a non-functional "Ask on logout" session saving checkbox. This update replaces that checkbox with a "Save the current session" button. ( BZ#432538
All users of gnome-session are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
