Starting gdeskcal automatically with GNOME

I run Debian Sid (despite whatever my profile says), and I found a great program called gdeskcal which can show a calendar with events from evolution in it on my desktop. I want to start it every time gnome starts. So I tried leaving it running while exiting gnome and telling gnome to save my current setup. Theoretically this should make it start each time I start gnome, no? It doesn't. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Its not a huge deal but just a minor annoyance.

10.6.3. Configuring Startup Applications

Use the Startup Programs tabbed section of the Sessions preference tool to specify non-session-managed startup applications. Startup applications are applications that start automatically when you start a session. You specify the commands that run the non-session-managed applications in the Startup Programs tabbed section. The commands execute automatically when you log in.

You can also start session-managed applications automatically. For more information, see Setting Session Options.

Table 10.10 lists the startup applications settings that you can configure.
