As seti at home is a console application, I don't see the point. Personally,
I'd start it in rc.local. You can start it from an xterm -- either put
a line that starts it in your .xinitrc, or bring up a terminal and then
'xterm -e setiathome &' which will bring up a separate xterm to run 
seti at home in.
