[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#547153: /usr/bin/xfce4-session: "Restart Style" setting has no effect and is undocumented

Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.6.1-1
Severity: normal

I can adjust the "Restart Style" of particular applications in the "Session"
tab of the "Session and Startup" settings dialog.  However, it is undocumented
what each of the four options "If Running", "Always", "Immediately" and
"Never" actually mean (well, I can guess the meaning of the last option, but
the difference between the first three is beyond me).

To find the meaning of the different options, I adjusted the "Restart Style"
for xfce4-panel and killed it (using "killall xfce4-panel").  The result was
always the same, no matter which option I used for the setting: the panel
vanished and did not restart automatically.
