Same problem - GNOME DO, more or less consistently does not start on user login, despite it being set to do exactly that. I often have to manually start it from Accessories menu.

Assorted bugs are that...

1) I suspect it is involved in a number of crashes I've had recently (but can't pin down, other than Do has been active during all)

2) Right now, as i was about to check the version number, none of the Do "about" dialog buttons to close the windows seems to make it close.

Sorry to say this, but it's starting to seem too buggy for me to want to keep it installed.

Found a fix:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/gnome-do

I've tried doing 'complete removal' which I thought removed the config files to fix it, but I guess it didn't.

I still think this is a bug, though.
