You might want to keep tabs on some Xubuntu-related blogs :) (That said,
I'll try to focus some more on nice features on my own blog)

Anyway, the problem is that if you did not notice the checkbox then you
wouldn't know why all your applications are suddenly appearing on startup.
Then, if you later do find out about the checkbox and you uncheck it, the
applications *still* keep appearing. The worst, however, is that it is known
to some times cause problems and you wouldn't know what the source of the
problems is.
