What does the step "save your desktop configuration" mean exactly?
Are you running a KDE or GNOME desktop environment?
AFAIK saves KDE the states of opened/iconic windows and tells via kwm
the application to be opened/iconic when it is started the next time.

In your case emacs would start iconic, but than the KDE window manager
would tell emacs to show up.

Could that happen in your setting?

Did you try this in your current environment or within an older SuSE?
