Haven't really read through your mail (I haven't looked at XSMP
for a long time, so I'd have to do a lot of research to remember
how it all works), but I'd thought I'd mention that we stopped
running gnome-smproxy as part of GNOME in Red Hat a long time
ago, since it was just a source of constant problems.

I don't think there is much virtue to trying to get X11R5 
applications to session-manage properly these days; generally
no session management for an app is better than slightly-broken
session management for an app, and that's the best you are
going to get.
