When the X session is closing and xchat has DCC transfers running I want

I'm sure that's some kind of thing possible with some D-Bus
methods/signals but I can't find anywhere documentation about that...
Can someone point me the good way for such things ?

Right now you have to do this with XSMP, gnome-session doesn't have a D-Bus protocol for it.


Thanks ! Is there no protocol yet, or is it a reason to not use D-Bus ?

I'm not sure what you mean by "implementing D-Bus support" ; D-Bus is more a means to an end than an end in itself.

If your goal is to implement session management, then D-Bus isn't used for that right now, XSMP is. GNOME could certainly use D-Bus for it instead, but at the moment it does not.

I personally think XSMP should be replaced by a "shutdown protocol" on D-Bus plus a "startup programs" folder, since XSMP has lots of nasty complexity that nobody really understands or uses.
