Source: xfce4-session
Version: 4.10.1-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

with current build options legacy commands are saved in session cache - this leads to several misbehaviors when
reloading a session (commands are eventually executed twice, legacy commands are executed without options and so on)
According to the manual, xfce4-session should be build without legacy-sm

Command Explanations
--disable-legacy-sm: This switch disables legacy session management which isn't necessary on modern system.

Thanks Alf
