Does anyone know anything about this?

I've been driven to using gnome instead of KDE, which I've been using
for maybe 5 years because the upgrade from KDE-3 to KDE-4 made it
impossible for me to use it (maybe this will change in the next year of

KDE-3 saves the desktop layout, running processes, etc. whenever a
session ends.  I have been looking for a way to do this in Gnome; it
looks like something in the menu: System->Personal->Sessions would do

"Setup" function seems to be undocumented for the 2.22 level of Gnome.
