1.73.1.  RHBA-2009:1079: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1079
An updated gnome-session package that fixes a bug is now available.
gnome-session manages a GNOME desktop session. It starts up the other core GNOME components and handles logout and saving the session.
This updated gnome-session package fixes the following bug:
  • gnome-session, also referred to as the GNOME Session Manager, remembers information such as which applications were open at the time of logout (among other session details), and restores these applications upon logging in again. A bug prevented gnome-session from restoring two applications when both of them were named the same, such as could happen with GKrellM system monitors, multiple instances of the KDE Konsole, and potentially other applications with multiple instances. With this updated package, gnome-session is able to restore all same-named application instances which were saved in the previous session, thus resolving the problem. (BZ#484431)
All users of gnome-session are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
