It would falsely restore clients that do not want to be restored (maybe also because they've gotten some autostart entry)

So if I logout, kwrite exits, konsole asks, I cancel, I restart kwrite, I logout, kwrite exits, konsole asks, I cancel, I restart kwrite, ... I end up with n iterations of kwrite on the restorage? Nahhh.... the SM should restore what the user left behind on logout, not what he had running in the former session "somewhen" ;-)

Other than that, thanks and kudos for the Investigation and get QGuiApplication fixed itr. =)

Cheers,
