[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#854977: xfce4-session: unchecked "Automatically save session on logout" has no effect

Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.12.1-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

this bug is still reported in upstream.

I report it here again because the upstream-bugreport is from August 2014
without being triaged. This indicates substantially problems in the xfce-
project team. Because of Debian qualitiy reason I recommend to kill xfce from
Debian repository.

The option "Automatically save session on logout" is ignored. Everytime I
logout/shutdown/reboot something is written into ~/.cache/sessions.

I found that out because the start of xfce slows down extremly. In the xfce-
forum someone told me this can be fixed If I would delete that folder (while
not logged in). This worked for one time. The next time (with the unchecked
option!) the folder and some files in it are still recreated and the next
startup slows down.
