There is no session affinity for machines. You need some network profile storage to have same desktop through xen sessions

Sorry dd not understood your solution. Please elaborate further.
WHat you observe is how cirti works. You cannot convince it to re-connect user to same machine.

with xendesktop you can use pooled desktops with random assignment or you can link the desktop to the user at first usage.
but with the second option no other user can use the desktop if vacant.
check this for the difference between  pooled and dedicated machines:
