Bug Description

This may not be part of unity, sorry if it isn't!

If you click on the "Startup applications..." tool and the get "Add", you are presented with a "you know how to use the command line right?"-style dialog that gives no clue about what to enter. Only geeks are going to know what to put in "Command:". What it should do, is present you with a list of applications from the launcher to use, with an additional "Custom" button which shows the present dialog.
