Yes I am aware of this. I am currently working on just such a window
manager, and it is a messy way of doing stuff - the window manager has to
make a list of windows and their sizes as shutdown (so we have essentially
two copies of the session) and then as the windows popup it has to try and
match up the windows with its own list and position them accordingly.
Fun. Does E get this right? WM doesn't.
It doesn't get away from the fact that from an end user's point of view,
Window Maker's session management works better than Gnome's in this
