Things in /etc/init.d are meant to be started at boot time or when the 
runlevel changes. Therefore it is probably not the right place for your 
command which you want to start after login. Therefore, if the other 
suggestions in this thread don't help you, you could try the script of my 
previous post in this modified version:

/bin/sleep 20 && /path/to/your/command &
exit 0
