It's not about that. On session restart, the workspace of the _root_
window may be 0 or # for all instances. That's legal and normal under
XSMP, my 2nd mail from yesterday describes why.

Yes, because I use a patched Geany with session management. But even
without it, on restart all instances connect to the same socket. This
patch may work properly only if combined with a sm which always stores
--socket-file in the session (current sm-s don't do that).
