- Session management:

  Metacity connects to the session manager and will set itself up to
  be respawned. It theoretically restores sizes/positions/workspace
  for session-aware applications.

This doesn't appear to be happening for me (the restoring
size/positions), though maybe the apps I tried are broken (gedit, eog). 
Has this changed?
