Atis... you misunderstand.

Now read what I write:

        IF YOU EDIT THE SAVED-SESSION FILE, IT IS A BINARY BLOB. YOU
        NEED COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF THE FILE FORMAT. IF YOU EDIT IT,
        BE PREPARED FOR IT TO NOT WORK UPON NEXT LOGIN. YOU ARE BEST OFF
        USING EXISTING TOOLS (BEING "SAVE SESSIONS SETTINGS" FROM TH
        LOGOUT PROMPT) TO MAKE THE FILE PROPER.

Also, he had saved the session before and didn't understand why it kept
coming back with OpenOffice and a Gnome-terminal.

Once he, fully briefed us as to his problem, he was fully informed on
howto do the proper procedure, to fix his issue, it worked a charm.

I thank you for your effort.
