VS Code keeps older Julia sessions, but produces errors

Hello.

I’m using VS Code 1.62.0 with Julia 1.6.3 and the VS extension 1.4.3 for Julia.

When I open VS Code I see several terminals, in multiple tabs.
It seems it keeps every session and tries to load all of them every time, adding a new one when I start VS Code again.

It says:
Session contents restored from 7/11/2021 at 4:54:42

But it also produces an error:

ERROR: LoadError: IOError: connect: no such file or directory (ENOENT)

If I exit() the session it just keeps waiting forever, though I can interrupt it doing ^C.

How can I tell VS Code to forget all previous sessions and work just with one?
I don’t want to save anything.

Try disabling the terminal.integrated.enablePersistentSessions setting.

OK, thank you.
I will try and see if the problem persists.

What is the name of the temporal files used to save that sessions on the disk?
I would also like to delete them in case there are too many.
