Thanks for that. It works partially in that I can start Konsole in the
right place but my requirements for Dolphin seem to be too complex to
be specified. I want 3 Dolphin windows on the same desktop. Two of them
have split panes. The other has a single pane but also a terminal view
(which the others don't). Plasma seems unable to handle that, though it
may just require more work to configure - you need to understand
terminology such as "Window class" etc. which I'm hazy about.

What I really want is a way to automatically restore a session (i.e.
restart my basic set of apps in the right places and with the right
default settings), but that isn't likely to happen any time soon.
