@Bayle: do you intend to work on it? In this case, you should assign it to yourself and set it in progress.

Anyway, this isn't linked to Unity, but gnome-session, redirecting. Thanks for the tracking bug :)

thanks, no, I don't plan to work on it, I'm just interested in the feature, particularly for window placement (I'm less interested in resumption of state within the application).

At the current time, I know of no way in Ubuntu 11.04 to have applications startup automatically upon login and appear at specified Compiz viewports. Devilspie apparently can only send windows to the first row of Compiz viewports ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/devilspie/+bug/380880 ), and Compiz's Place Windows feature only works sporadically on windows created by Startup Applications ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-meta/+bug/727098 ).
