Hi Martin,

desktop.diff works fine for me, thank you.

What to expect from desktop-read when used in the middle of a session? Good 
question. I never use it that way, because I tend to spam my one and only 
session with lots of buffers ;-). However, other more organized people might 
use multiple desktop files. They would probably want desktop-read to behave as 
in Emacs 23, whatever that behaviour exactly was.

The "If no desktop file is found, clear the desktop [...]" part in the 
doc-string of desktop-read sounds odd to me. Why would the function want to 
clear the desktop if it doesn't find a desktop file, but perform some sort of a 
merge operation with the current session (instead of a replace) if one is found?

Kind regards,
