I understand *you* are not happy, yes. The change was requested in
#745676. As stated in my last message there, if it's indeed a regression
I'm not against reverting that, but “legacy” is X11R5 session
management, which is really deprecated, afaiui.
So if you still have applications using X11R5 and not X11R6 session
management protocol, it might be wise reporting bugs against them.
Now /maybe/ the X11R6 session management support has bugs which were
hidden by the legacy SM support, which then need to be fixed in
