I'm not talking about logout/login (which has decent, though not 
perfect, success rate for me). I'm talking about crash recovery (which 
only affects single windows, though in fairness I think konq runs 
process-per-window anyway, or at least isn't a uniqueapp the way FF - or 
Konsole :-( - is), and ability to save named sessions.

What I *really* want is the ability to save a subset of all opened tabs 
(okay to be restricted to whole windows) as a named session, which even 
FF doesn't have currently.

Indeed :-). I'm not really complaining about it, just making a note.

By the way, I haven't logged into a KDE session in almost two months 
:-D. I only ever log out when I need to do hardware maintenance, or when 
I get around to it after something breaks horribly (e.g. kio issue).

(Actually that's only true of my desktop; my netbook is usually on once 
a week and gets shut down when I am done.)

Really? What RB are you testing against?
