You did not provide very good answers to my objections. It certainly is NOT
a bugfix, it certainly does provide a lot more bugs in usability.
You even said its not a bugfix, quote;
    'it's the most requested feature for kdm.'

I am very surprised this feature went into HEAD, and feel you have 'sneaked'
it past us.  I objected; you wrote a I don't agree to your objection and
put it in anyway.
That is not a very nice way to work in a version that is suppost to be stable...

I'm wondering if you could please revert your commit until the usability
problems I noted are fixed.
I have problems with the following issues;
- it can't work perfectly, you can't have 2 sessions open and have NO adverse
  This has to be either fixed, or made perfectly clear to the user.
- it is lacking severly in the feedback department. 
  At several points the user of the machine has to know about the session.
- the distinction between session management and your feature should be
  obvious to users.

And I don't believe you can fix all of those points. Please prove me wrong.
