As a gtk+ application, Geany uses the legacy (X11R5) session protocol,
yet we are not receiving such messages. But of course, given the xsmp
support sutuation, your concern has merit.

Thanks to Eugene's initial implementation, the SM functionality can be
en/disabled with --enable-libsm=yes|no in configure or autogen. So I
changed the default to "no" in the latest patch (2012-08-07).

That would have been very useful while while Eugene, and later me,
were developing the patch. But there are very little changes in the
latest two years, I have 3 other patches in the tracker, and another 3
on my machine for a plugin I'm writing... So it's easier for me to
regenerate all of them in the same way, and keep their previous
version(s) as .diff files, instead of dealing N branches. I changed
the latest tracker patches to .git to format though.
