Bug Description

I'm talking to a couple of ISVs with closed source communication and collaboration applications. Each features an option in the UI to "Launch at Login".

When strictly confined this writes the autostart file to ~/snap/<snap>/.config/autostart/<app>.desktop which is not in a path that is enumerated when logging into a desktop session.
