Hey,

It'd be awesome if there was a command line or something that I could use via the gnome sessions management tool to let gtsm launch and then start up as only a system tray icon.

That would make it much more useful to use.

Also, a way to get verbose output or some kind of log while connecting to aid in debugging would be awesome. (gtsm pronounced that it was fully connected, when i had another ssh session that had the port already open, and gtsm hadn't been able to open up on the same port.)

I know that's kinda two requests. sorry :)

    I was looking for the same feature, so I just downloaded the source (although I don't really know C that much), and found this comment in main.c:
    // * if there's a notification area AND there are one or more 'autostart' tunnels
    // then maindialog is hidden (ie 'start minimized to tray')

    So I did what was obvious: set one of my tunnels to autostart, and gstm is working as expected.
