Good point. The OP's question was a general one, though, not
just for Kate or dcop-aware apps. But your point is still valid.
Do apps killed by an X restart get a kill -9 or -15? If the
former, it might help do a 'kill -15' on each of them before
restarting (assuming they create .save files or the equivalent
on that signal). It would take some homework and preparation,
but it could be part of the toolbox.
