OS/Version: All

/opt/gnome/share/autostart is a nonsense directory, GNOME does not use it.
/opt/gnome/share/gnome/autostart was the valid directory in the past (or
/etc/xdg/autostart, of course).

/opt/gnome/share/autostart was used because of a SUSE patch that has been
dropped. Starting with 10.2, no package installed any .desktop files there and
that's also when gnome-session stopped using it. See also: Bug 208680

This directory just confuses people. If it exists, people will expect that it
works, but it doesn't.
