I find that background apps, such as setiathome, heyu and a few others 
are best run from /etc/rc.d/rc.local.  But you have no gfx available 
at that point so launchng a gui app does mke a lot of sense there.

I'd imagine there is a similar file one could edit in the X startup, 
but I have NDI which it might be.  Thats a question for X experts.
