Right, that would be preferable.  (I actually asked that question in a bunch 
of different forms in my initial mail.)  But without knowing anything about 
whether it's considered a "feature" or if it's hard to fix or not, I think 
launching the daemon in $DE session startup scripts would be an acceptable 
and easy enough temporary fix until there's a better solution.

Interestingly enough, some apps seem to launch the daemon if it's not already 
running.  For example clicking some (but not all) buttons in 
gnome-control-center do it.  That doesn't happen with the majority (or any?) 
of other GNOME/GTK apps I regularly use though.
