If so, the answer is no.

It's possible to change attributes (size/postition/dekstop whatever) and the next time you start the program it will return to it's 'saved state'.
Attributes will be remembered as the windows looks when you tell Fluxbox to remember it.
You can choose which attributes you want to remember so you don't have to remember them all.
For some programs I only want size to be remembered.
For others I want size/position/desktop to be remebered or why not sticky state/tabstate.

There is also an option called 'Save settings on close' which I believe would give you the behaviour you were asking about. (don't know since I don't want that...)
Cheers m8, thats what i meant, and I don't want it either

that source code isn't very complicated. I bet you
could go into the source code and figure out what
commands change which desktop a program is
running on, and edit the source to make it do what you
want.
like when the program starts, make it start mozilla,
and move it to desktop 2, make it start gaim and move
it to desktop 3.
before i figured out how blackbox configured it's menu
years ago, i would edit the source code and add in
menu items i wanted and recompile. the program
was so small it only took a few seconds. maybe you
could create an external file with the names of programs
you wanted to start and on what desktop, and call
a simple function from inside fluxbox, that would do
those commands.
