Ooops, you replied personally (for the future, it is a good netiquette
rule always to reply publicly, in this way more people can share the
eventual solution).

The question to the second question is: in my system (gnome 2.18),
look at System -> Preferences -> Sessions -> Startup Programs, or if
you're a command line bigot have a look at:

when you can manually add/delete such scripts.

HTH, regards.
