Description Paul Worrall 2022-05-24 17:50:11 UTC
1.  Start an X11 desktop with two virtual desktops and configure for auto session management
2.  Start system monitor on desktop 2
3. Logout/in

System monitor is launched on desktop 1

System monitor launched on the desktop it was on when I logged out

Operating System: KDE neon 5.24
KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.94.0
Qt Version: 5.15.4
Kernel Version: 5.13.0-41-generic (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 2 × AMD A6-6400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Memory: 7.7 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: AMD CEDAR

I'm using X11.  Session management on Wayland seems to be broken atm
I have no special Window or Application Settings
I have tried many other apps, and they all start on the desktop they were on when I logged out.

@Nate: are you sure it's a duplicate of that bug.  I found that every app I tried was restored to the correct desktop except System Monitor.  

At one point I had eight apps on eight different desktops including Firefox and LibreOffice, and System Monitor was the only one that didn't get restored to the same desktop.

Pretty sure. Apps generally don't have any code to manually do this; it's all controlled by ksmserver, which is known to have issues with restoring apps on their correct desktops. I don't know what the pattern is though.
