One way is to add it to /etc/X11/gdm/Init/Default.  This is the script
that sets background colour, starts xconsole etc.

If you want to start things manually, the cookie you need to access
the display is in /var/gdm/:0.xuth.

A third option is to use GDM's autologin feature to log some user in
and put the required application in their .xsession or whatever.
