I do the same. In the office I have two additional monitors and at home one.
So a shell script is checking what is available and runs xrandr to setup
the monitor and resolution.
Perhaps this is the reason we never noticed that the settings are not saved
and/or applied at tde session startup.
In fact I have noticed this on a VM ware recently, but I was thinking it has
to do with the vmware.
I think it is worth a bug report, so that we may not forget to inspect this.
