When you "logout" there will be a check mark area "Save Session for
Future Logins"... check that mark.

That way you can have things automagically start. I have Pidgin, Skype,
Dropbox, and a few other things start automagically.

Once you get your desktop the way you want it... make sure that box is
checked... logout... and then login again.

From then on, make sure the check mark is *NOT* checked... and it will
bring up things like you want them.
