Blackbox users please help

Im trying to auto launch bbpager and gkrellm in different positions when starting x without using bbappconf or bblaunch. The two programs start up in one giant slit which looks rediculous. I would like to see bbpager load up at the top left horizontally and gkrellm top right vertically. Is it possible to use 2 slits because .blacboxrc only has 1 config? This is what it looks like right now:

session.screen0.slit.autoHide: False
session.screen0.slit.direction: Vertical
session.screen0.slit.maximizerOver: False
session.screen0.slit.onTop: True
session.screen0.slit.placement: TopRight

here's my .xinitrc
bbpager -w sleep 2 &
gkrellm -w sleep 2 &
exec /usr/local/bin/blackox

any help would be greatly appreciated.
