Summary: No way to have gaim start in tray

Initial Comment:
If I'd like to have gaim started by GNOME during system boot I can't tell it to 
start in tray, it always starts maximized. This is only possible if GAIM is 
managed by the session manager, which e.g. the current version of ubuntu 
doesn't use by default since it has some side-effects.
Adding an option to GAIM to have it start in tray would be very great.

At least on my ubuntu edgy system GAIM always starts with the contact list
I think you misunderstood me here, I'm talking about not using the session
manager (not saving the session on quit), which some distros e.g. ubuntu
do, because it has negative side-effects.
I just put "gaim" in my autostart list in GNOME, and this doesn't work
The best thing would be IMHO to add an option "start minimized" which is
used when gaim is started without the session manager.

Gaim will start in the state it was left.
If it was minimized to the tray when you quit, that is where it will be
when you start up.
