I found that Ion3's "restart" command fails to work when managed
by gnome-session-manager. It requests to be saved using:
SmcRequestSaveYourself(sm_conn, SmSaveBoth, False,
SmInteractStyleAny, False, False);
gnome-session immediately sends it a save request. Ion3 responds
by asking to be saved in the second phase. This is a bit silly in
this context but makes sense in general. gnome-session ignores this
response and Ion3 never restarts.
The attached patch fixes this, and appears to be applicable to the
GNOME is going to shut down bugzilla.gnome.org in favor of gitlab.gnome.org.
As part of that, we are mass-closing older open tickets in bugzilla.gnome.org
which have not seen updates for a longer time (resources are unfortunately
quite limited so not every ticket can get handled).
If you can still reproduce the situation described in this ticket in a recent
and supported software version of gnome-session, then please follow

Thank you for your understanding and your help.
