"I suggest filing a new bug for modifying this dialog so that it uses a  compound button, since that's predicated on other parts of our UI using those types of buttons.

This bug is about the fact that the button text and placements are confusing
users. To solve that issue, I would suggest:

 - changing the text of "Start New Session" to "Close" (probably needs a new
bug so we don't get held up on string freeze)
 - moving the "Restore" button so that it is always beneath the "Restore"
column

The close button should close the session restore window and replace it with
the user's home page.

This will break slightly with the OSX consistency of always putting the
"passive" option on the far right (ie: Cancel / OK ) but has the benefit of
being cleaner in terms of information hierarchy as there is strong alignment
with the options for restoring."
