Starting applications at login in GNOME

How can I start applications automatically in GNOME for a normal user? I tried to add gaim using the Sessions tool, but that starts it repeatedly at logon and when I open a new shell.
How does the rhn-applet-gui get started?

Well, the Sessions manager does start gaim (I had added gaim to .profile, which is why it started repeatedly). Now, however, the Sessions manager and Nautilus windows also show up at start-up. but I am not letting that ruin my Saturday.
