I'm with Anders here, what seems to be logical is that if I saved the session 
in KDE4 with kwrite from KDE3 opened, when I want to restore the session, the 
logical thing is to restore kwrite from KDE3 and not from KDE4.

For "roaming users" (which anyways is not *by far* the normal case at all), 
there's a solution of compromise: first try to run the command in the path 
that was executing when saving ther session. if it doesn't exist, then 
execute the first command in PATH, or the second etc.
So, basically add the saved path of the command to the beginning of PATH and 
then execute.

BTW, is there any chances this gets backported in KDE3? I'm using some KDE4 
apps in KDE3 and I have the same problem.
