Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.10.1-6
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

This version has been built with --disable-legacy-sm and now I lost all my
windows (11) opened when I start my machine.

An empty desktop is completely unusable for me.

If I understand the problem correctly, xfce windows manager (xfwm4) need to
be launched with --sm-client-disable now, which is not the case by default.

It is possible to document how to restore my old session or even better and
certainly the best, xfce4-session should do that automaticaly.
