KDE 4.4, Dolphin and Session Restore

In the distributions I use, the KDE Session Restore function is turned on by default.

I make a lot of use of it, having various applications over six desktops that I like to have restored when I restart the machine.

Something odd has been happening on my installations (Arch and Mandriva) since I updated to KDE 4.4 which I haven't seen reported by anyone else. It leads me to wonder if it's something odd I am doing, or perhaps other people don't use session restore.

In KDE 4.4 - and I emphasize 4.4 only - if I shut the machine down with one instance of Dolphin open, when I restart there are two.

If I shut down with two Dolphins, on restart I have three. As far as I have experimented that continues indefinitely.

If I shut down with the Dolphin on desktop one then the second Dolphin appears on desktop one.

If I shut down with one Dolphin on Desktop two then the second dolphin appears on Desktop one.

I really haven't the heart to look for other permutations.

Can anyone confirm this behaviour?
