application.  I guess you can set autostart order. If not you could put it
in one of your X startup scripts.

I've had to much with the session settings in .cache because Pidgin likes to
start multiple copies if the cache isn't wiped out. I turned off "Save
session" and "Prompt on Logout" and deleted all files in .cache in order to
get Pidgin to stop starting multiple copies. It seems that the session
system in XFCE could be rethought. I just turn it off anymore.
