It's a general bug in gnome-session. I just tried to disable other
services (like g-p-m) from autostarting and it had no effect either.
gnome-session creates files in ~/.config/autostart with
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false, but either this format is not correct
anymore or it simply ignores them upon login
Reassigning to gnome-session.
