order of auto-started programs

Hi all,

I use Gnome on FC8 and wonder how one could control the order in which auto-started programs should run at an X login.

Generally I use 'gnome-session-properties' to add autostart programs. However I don't see any parameter to order these programs?? Specifically, I need to add an rsync script but run it after Network Manager, which is already set to auto-run.

I know there's the 'session-manual' file under .gnome2 directory and ~/.config/autostart directory, but am not entirely sure how I could use them to sequence programmes that involve ones already registered for autostart. For 'session-manual' file, it mysteriously disappears after a login, but I'd rather avoid having to write this file from scratch.

Help would be greatly appreciated.
