            Bug ID: 365413
           Summary: Session restore does not work if the user was in a
                    folder not yet re-mounted
           Product: konsole
           Version: 16.04.2
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: john.ettedgui at gmail.com


For about a year konsole has not been restarting when restarting plasma and I
didn't know why, till yesterday I saw post #67 in

I have some local partitions that somehow take a long time to mount (btrfs...)
and so I mount them outside of fstab. They are still mounting when Plasma
If before restarting Plasma a konsole tab's shell is in a folder from one of
these partitions, the konsole will not be restored on Plasma's session restart.
konsole is not even started (well at least I don't see it..., I guess it
started and fail somehow).

It would be nice to have a different behavior:
- If it has to fail, at least explain to the user what's happening.
- Failing only the problematic tabs and maybe defaulting them to ~ would be an
- Retrying till a certain configurable timeout.
- Allowing the session restore to depend on a systemd service.

An example of something that supports my scenario is KTorrent.
When it gets auto restarted by Plasma it may complain about certain torrents'
files that are not available anymore (because of the facts that the partition
are not mounted) and it allows me to retry by simply pressing a button. This is
not transparent but it works well enough.

Please re-assign if I was wrong.

Thank you,

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a shell in Konsole in a mounted folder
2. Make sure that folder is not mounted by the time Plasma's session starts

Actual Results:  
See no Konsole auto-reloaded.

Expected Results:  
See Konsole auto-reloaded (not sure about the problematic tabs).
