Couldn't gnome-session ask the applications for their icons in some way
when saving the session ? Also, it would probably be a good idea to
replace the foot/question mark icon to something that didn't look so
much like there was a problem with the icons.

This icon is the one used in the panel when a file is missing, it's not
a very nice thing to show to the user if there is actually no problem.

Maybe we could also change the session startup feedback, to something
"Restoring settings" (gnome-settings-daemon)
"Launching Panel" (gnome-panel)
"Launching File Manager" (nautilus)
and then a generic
"Restoring Session" (launching all the other apps that aren't part of
the "core" desktop in that case)

I might have missed a couple of essential applications, but you get the
