That's close enough. I don't really see much practical difference (I
wouldn't expect processes to be frozen and continued), though I would
generally expect apps to have their current directory preserved across
sessions if it has changed from the default whenever possible (i.e. if
permissions or locations hadn't changed in the meantime). I don't know
how practical that is.

I use Windows so little that I probably mistook this for what it does.

As I say, *restarting" is essentially what I mean by *restoring*. I've
always understood it in that sense.
