Welcome to the list, and thanks again for your work :)

I've not icon when doing this, but it works if I run it from the
gnome-session directory

Why not, the 3 identical icons looks a bit weird to me but I'm really
not an usability guy, just a luser :)

No problem :)

I like it but it's a bit compact. We said we want a really nice windows
for this, so I guess we can use extra spacing it both directions. We
spoke about using a separator between the 2 groups too. I'm sure than
jdub/mpt will have extra comments on this :)

For the screenshot your Xnest idea should work fine. You can probably
change the code too to make a normal window instead of grabbing the
events for it.
