Nothing you can't do with the command line. It just saves state with respect to open directories, panels and pinboard. The reason I put it in was that I'm using a WM that relies on a rather static layout to be usable, so windows appearing in the correct places at startup is convenient.

Yay, say that again. You didn't come up with some nice convenience functions around the smlib ones, did you? Gtk/Gdk doesn't seem to have any except setting window role and client id.
Also, does anyone know of an nice editor that supports this "restore files open at shutdown" thing. It would be nice to have them appear again when logging in.
