We would only need a better wording. The term "session" should not be
used since it is too technical. Using default seems to be to generic.

I am not sure about the future of the test button. Currently we launch a
second x server with the new config file. But many drivers and cards do
not support this correctly and things tend to break. If we can apply
changes instantly a confirmation dialog with "keep" and "revert" button
would appear after hitting one of the apply buttons. So the button order
for the main window would be the following one:

[Apply Permanently] [Cancel] [Apply Temporarily]

But we would still need at least tooltips:

"Restore the chosen configuration after starting the computer" and
"Revert configuration after shutting down the computer"?
