Also as a heavy user of Spaces, I find leaving anything open to be pretty much 
useless, since all the windows upon logging back in open in the same space. 

I don’t apportion spaces by app, but by project which means app windows are 
scattered among several spaces. I finally gave up and just a) quit shutting 
down or logging off and b) unchecking the box to open things when I log in 
again so I can start with a clean slate.
