You don't need to start anything, choose sawfish from GDM and it
already is fired up. There's no autostart stuff in sawfish atm, I'm
using some code, but it's far from beeing optimal. Also I haven't
written in, I've found it on a webpage. You can find my sawfishrc here:

Navigate to line 522, ;; Startup Applications, if you want to have a
look. Currently it has one defunct: processes are also created on
restart, so before restart they need to be killed first (only those
sawfish created will be killed and restarted), though.
