I concur, but I believe the original complaint concerned the *size* of
the editor window. That's the sort of thing I think users prefer to
always be the same whether loading an existing session or passing
TextAdept a file on the command line when it's defined as $EDITOR
under Linux. A default starting window size probably ought to be a
separately configurable TA option (or something that could be passed
on the command line.).

A menu or some such to load a previous session in that instance would
be one option. Another might be to make loading a previous session
the default, with a parm that could be passed on the command line to
*not* do that when TextAdept is $EDITOR, and that parm becomes part of
the $EDITOR definition.
