That's definitely not a problem of the session manager.  The session
manager is unable to now about the states (or the window positions) of
applications.  There is no special window position property in the X
session management protocol, and we also shouldn't add one.

There are two way to solve this problem:

a) Solve it in every client.  The clients have to make sure, that all
their windows are restored properly on the screen.

b) Use a clever window manager, that will not place windows off the screen.
