I don't have a preconceived notion. If most other distributions aren't
running into this, then there's probably no reason to change it
upstream; it's not a hard patch to maintain in Fedora and should not
cause cross-distribution compatibility issues. We could put a
--with-session-config-file-name=FOO configure option upstream perhaps.
After FC5/FC6 are good and outdated the config file could even be
renamed back to the nicer name.
