KDE Autostart

I'm running KDE 3.2 and I want to add somethings to a startup script.

I found you can add things to ~/.kde/Autostart and while anything that I put in there works, it makes the bouncy mouse icon appear and it what I'm starting appears in the taskbar, then dissapears after awhile.

How do I put in things in Autostart without getting the bouncy mouse and thing in the taskbar? Or where else can I put it?

you could always put it in your .xinitrc script.

Ok, I added it my .xsession which is what .xinitrc is linked to, but that didn't do anything. It doesn't seem like it's being run. When I used enlightenment it was being run as I had a bunch of things being run, but with KDE it doesn't seem to get run. Any ideas?
