I remember that now.  So is there any way to drop back to using GNOME
Classic as in Deb 7?

If not, are there any other reasonable, debian-packaged, desktop
environments that provide auto-saved terminals?

So sad, UI design following faddish, short-lived form over function,
just like the fashion industry: the emperor has no clothes!

Best regards,
