Of course it loads them.

TRUE -> project_load_file_with_session() -> project_load_file() +
FALSE -> project_load_file() only

Since load_startup_files() calls configuration_open_files() after
loading the default or project session file names, TRUE is not
required. The TRUE is for opening a project via socket.

Now let's give these default sessions names, to be able to identify
them, and files to be saved, of course, and a distinctive filename
suffix, for example ".geany", and we end up with projects.

You can create as many projects as you want to save file lists only,
not related to any software (or other) projects. Name them "Default
Session 1", "Default Session 2" etc. and that's it.
