I use 'session saver' with GEdit on Ubuntu 11.10. I would like to know where GEdit stores them so that I can automatically back it using DropBox.

Session Saver: Allow to bookmark working sessions in order to get them back for further use.

The details are saved as a XML file in ~/.config/gedit/. The file concerned is saved with the name saved-sessions.xml.

I can't tell if it is useful to sync this file using DropBox because all it ever saves in the file is the exact file path. But, it is a different story if you are storing the same file in the same path across different machines.
