When I log out of my GNOME desktop, if Emacs (23.1) is running I get a
message that it is "not responding". I therefore usually manually quit
Emacs before logging out.

Looking at the source, it seems that Emacs does have xsession support,
so I am wondering what the problem is here. I am only running Emacs
interactively, not in any sort of daemon mode, so the only emacs
process I have running is the one I started myself.

I can't see anything about this in the manual, but of course the
trouble is that "session" occurs many times. I can't find "xsession"
at all in the manual, and "log out" doesn't yield anything helpful
either. Searching online suggests that Emacs may need some help with
GNOME, but I can't see which version or why exactly it needs help, if
it does.

Clarification sought!

Maybe your Emacs was built without libSM?  Did you compile it yourself?
In that case, check if HAVE_X_SM is defined in src/config.h.

If not, try to see if Emacs is linked to libSM.  On GNU/Linux that is
% ldd emacs

Please yes M-x report-emacs-bug when reporting bugs, it includes information that helps tracking down the bug.
