I personally cannot say as I have not messed with this...hopefully someone
else here has done so or can confirm a bug...

this is very strange...it actually sounds like a bug (tho I have not tried
to confirm this).  you might want to submit a bug report for this.

this is strange as my autostart does work.  There are some "default" 
differences with this between kde1 and kde2. (kde1 has a autostart folder
on the desktop whereas kde2 does not).

that's all?  :)

this is the first time anyone has reported these problems.  Allow others on
this list to confirm these problems or possibly point out how to solve them.

I'm not sure...there is still a lot of work going on in the documentation
arena for KDE 2.0.  But I'm hoping someone here can let us know so that
I can start adding this information to the packages. :)
