   following must be true:

   -   The   application   maps   a   top   level  window  containing  the
   WM_CLIENT_LEADER property.  This property provides  a  pointer  to  the

   a  WM_SAVE_YOURSELF client message each time the session manager issues
   a checkpoint or shutdown.  This allows the application to  save  state.
