Do you have the feeling of deja-vu?  
It's been a while that this topic came up but basicly metacity (the gnome 
window manager by default) requires apps to have working session management. 
Allowing the app to mess around with that by starting apps on specific 
desktops has been decided to be a bad idea (something many people disagree 
with) and stuff that used to work with fvwm (-xrm "*Desk: 1" and the like) or 
window binding ala sawfish have never been implemented.
