What I use as a workaround is defining the latitude and longitude at startup. I don't travel that much to benefit from the service to look it up every time I boot.

1) use or any other service to find your latitude/longitude
2) adjust the startup command of redshift to: gtk-redshift -l <latitude>:<longitude>
Example of latitude/longitude of Amsterdam for redshift: gtk-redshift -l 52.37:4.9

Adjusting the startup command in Ubuntu 11.10:
Start the dash and enter "startup applications", select Redshift and click "Edit", adjust the command as mentioned above.
