 Followup to let you know what I decided for myself - I have switched
from KDE to Gnome. I tried, but KDE4 is just not ready today.

I disagree, and I am always have been a gnome user.

 


 Switching was not without some discomfort and effort ... of note:

   - I've been unable to add items to my desktop menu(s)

   - Session save remains broken - still

There is a way of implementing a "manual" session save for gnome:

http://blogs.sun.com/mattman/entry/gnome_2_24_session_save1

It is working just fine for me, even with compiz. I just need to click
on a panel icon to send my terminals and applications to their appropriate
locations.

Note that this works only for gnome-terminal 2.24 (F10). gnome-terminal 2.18 (F8)
seems to not allow the changing of a terminal title.
