I unchecked "Automatically save session on logout" and cleaned old sessions in ~/cache/sessions. When I logout via sessions menu and relogin, not session is found in ~/cache/sessions. When the option "Prompt on logout" is checked, logout provides additional features like restart or shutdown. If I use one of them again no session is saved. So fare so good.
However, clicking restart or logout directly in the sessions menu top menu (not this one via logout submenu) still does save sessions. The action items must be differently configured. I do not think that is a wanted behaviour.
The logout/restart from Session menu and the one in Panel, does the same thing, but don't use exactly the same source code. So this may be a bug in the Panel's logout plugin. See :
Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
I'm having the same issue.
I use xubuntu and XFCE ppa (http://ppa.launchpad.net/xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10/ubuntu)
Since the last updade, independently of my option, XFCE ALWAYS saves session
An ugly workaround is to make read only the folder ~/.cache/sessions/
Hope they fix it soon.
