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.
