Default GNOME startup apps: where the file with commands?


I recently installed FC11 (few times, multi-cores problems + novice
LINUX sysadmin, me). After solving some basic problems
I'm continuing the customization of my desktop. I searched
how to set up GNOME session so that it'll remember the state/locations
of various apps I would like to be open all the times (like gnome-terminal
at specific coordinates with "top" runing it it and also a "gkrellm").
I remember in FC9 I has such thing among the many system menu items
but currently I don't see it. I found "System->Preferences->Startup apps."
and found the option "Automatically remember running application
when logging out", I checked it when the "gkrellm" and gnome-terminal
with "top" were running. At the next reboot, the "gkrellm" came up OK
but the gnome-terminal opened up in the correct coordinates
but without the "top". So I decided I'll find the file where these commands
are listed and add to the "gnome-terminal" the argument to start "top".
But where these startup commands are stored? So far I couldn't
find them.

Alternatively, in FC9 I had sesison manager which strangely is absent from
my current menus (although "ps -elyf | grep session" shows "gnome-session"),
did I missed a package to install?
