That's because the session names are generated by the open projects afaics. No 
open project -> empty session name.

Also imo it's totally unintuitive that, to change the name, I have to select 
an item and press F2 (or even double click). A "rename" button would make 
sense imo. F2 + Double click renaming should be additional sugar, not 
required. Esp. considering that DEL does not remove an entry...

Additionally, I can't see a way to start a new session from the CLI, which is 
also kinda bad.

And to top that: Why is "new session" closing my old one?
