I've been trying to understand the autostart mechanism in Gnome 2 for a small program I'm working on. This may continue to be a supported system in gnome-3, since it seems to be standardized by freedesktop.org and not the Gnome "Let's just rewrite around our bugs and drop features" team.
Without further ado or bitterness, here's a brief but technical dive into the modern autostart system on Gnome 2, as observed on a Lucid Lynx system (originally installed as Intrepid Ibex, I believe.) [Updated: autostart itself is also a freedesktop standard.]
