10.7: Installing Login Items.
Authored by: jediknil on Jul 27, '11 10:49:48AM

I'd argue this is not actually a bug as such. The default behavior of OS X Lion is to treat a log out conceptually like a Fast User Switch, except without keeping your programs in memory. So when you log back in, you're not starting a new user session.

OTOH, that means there isn't an easy (read: GUI-exposed) way to run quick cleanup tasks every time you start your computer.

10.7: Installing Login Items.

If it was simply suspending the login session, it would say so. You'd actually stay logged in, same as going to the login screen, your processes would stay running (or suspended).

So even if you classify this as "unexpected behavior", that still qualifies as a user environment bug.
