Gnome fails to start more than one xterm per session.

How to reproduce:

* Log in as a new user with no previous saved state from Gnome.
* Open two or more xterms from the debian menu.
* From Desktop -> Preferences -> Sessions choose "Save the current
* (optional): verify that the xterms are actually saved in
* log out
* log in

Only one of the xterm's is started.

Gnome-terminal, as well as other applications I have tried, behave as

Also, if I copy and paste the RestartCommand from ~/.gnome2/session,
the xterm opens in the correct place. I have the impression that
gnome-session never tries to execute the second (and latter) xterm's.
