I agree with Owen that this is right, the smproxy stuff is just a bad

I think KDE does have some "try to manage non-SM apps" code also, I
don't remember the details though. Someone was claiming that KDE
successfully restarts netscape/mozilla for example.

My memory is that I tried to find the code that did this and didn't
succeed. Anyway, so I don't know whether it would have the same issue
or not.
