Fixing Kate's 'save session' bug

If Kate is not saving sessions

Make sure the active user own all files under .kde

sudo chown -R username:username /home/username/.kde

Open ~/.kde/share/config/katerc and verify if these are in there:

Last Session=mysession.katesession 
Restore Window Configuration=true 
Session Exit=save

Note: There has been a long outstanding bug where sometimes some of the settings are not properly saved.
