I agree with Drew here. a user would reasonably expect that part
of the job of the desktop feature is restoring frames to their
former positions.

There is also, of course, the re-creation of all the buffers and
the re-assignment of the right buffers to the right windows on the
right frames. This is at least as important IMO.

Well, in my case, my display is small and all frames are
maximized, so the position of the frames is not important. So I
disagree with the "almost certainly", but otherwise I agree
