I've noticed that if I use the shutdown or restart dialogue and uncheck "Reopen windows when logging back in", it heeds my preference and will NOT open windows when logging back in…


BUT, if I bypass the shutdown or restart dialogue with the keyboard shortcut to shutdown / restart (cmd+opt+ctrl+eject / cmd+ctrl+eject), despite my preference being saved -- (I know this because any time I bring up the shutdown dialogue, the box is still unchecked) -- my computer reopens all apps and windows that I had open when shutting down.


(This is not a question in reference to reopening windows in specific applications -- it's about reopening all apps and all windows upon booting up.)


The only solution I've found to this problem is here, and it works, but I wonder if I'm making some mistake somewhere:

I'm running the latest update of Mountain Lion, 10.8.2, I've called AppleCare to no avail, and already submitted feedback to Apple. If anyone has further advice, I'm dying to hear it!
