Disable autostarted applications?  is set to No.

I find that in the openbox session, update-notifier is already running.  
So openbox does support /etc/xdg/autostart and is not subject to the 
LXDE bug concerning that.

But simply running update-notifier is not my problem, and I don't know 
how to tell if update-notifier is doing its job in OB.  It does not 
display a tray icon.  It does not trigger update-manager to run.  So I'm 
not seeing that this tells us much.
