Repeat question about Devil's Pie ??


I asked the following question on the list a week ago and got no
response so I thought I would try it again in the hopes there is someone
here who understands Devil's Pie better than I do.

"I have a gdevilspie script, ~/.devilspie/Evolution_ws3.ds, that works
fine as far as it goes.  I have devilspie set in my sessions manager to
start at startup.  The script is set to start Evolution on workspace 3
with a certain geometry.

However, I have noticed that Evolution still starts on workspace 1,
flashes for a fraction of a second, and is then moved to workspace 3.
If this is the way it has to be, I can live with it.  But it seems a bit
"hacky".  Is there a way, or a startup file (eg xresources), that I can
use so that the start up feels and looks smoother; so that Evolution
just seems to start in workspace 3 with no milli-second flash?

By the way, I have read and explored several good wiki's and tutorials
on using devilspie, but either I am blind or they remain silent on this

A second question has developed over the week.  Which configuration
dominates -- the gconf-editor or Devil's pie?  It seems I am bouncing
between the two in order to get my windows to do what I want.
