      I put let g:Netrw_list_hide= g:netrw_list_hide into
      the 'wrapper' function that saves the session.
      "" Save session after confirmation
      function! TjSaveSession()
      let g:Netrw_list_hide = g:netrw_list_hide
      let res = input("Save Session: [" . v:this_session ."] (Y/N)")
      if res == "y"
      exe ':call AutoSaveVimSesn()'
      "" Global variable saved

      > au SessionLoadPost * let g:netrw_list_hide= g:Netrw_list_hide
      And the line above in my .vimrc

      And now it works!

      Thanks for the solution.
