Updated gnome-session packages that fix a bug and add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The gnome-session package manages the GNOME desktop session. It starts up the other core components of GNOME and handles logout and saving of the session.
- Prior to this update, the gnome-session utility may have improperly saved desktop sessions. As a consequence, when logging in, the running applications were incorrectly collapsed from multiple workspaces into the first workspace and their initial position was not restored. This has been fixed: applications are now restored in their original workspaces and correctly positionally placed.
- Prior to this update, users were not able to manage multiple custom GNOME sessions while being logged in. Now, multiple sessions can be managed under the Options tab of System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated gnome-session packages, which resolve this bug and add this enhancement.
