Thats probably better than my idea was, which was to add a bash script to 
~/.trinity/Autostart, named sound that did the same thing.

But since I already have the xrdb line in there, I terminated it with a 
&& so this would be exec'd after that bit of sed magic you supplied.  

Since theres quite a bit of stuff being restored when tdm restarts, which 
takes a good 30+ seconds to do, I wish I could find where to get it to 
restart each of the numerous term's I use on its correct workspace 
screen.  They always restore with the correct number of tabs, but they 
all pile up on the same screen & have to be moved to the screen I am 
used to using for that particular workflow. I think the only exception 
to that is probably trinity-kcalc, which always seems to be on the 
workspace #3 it was running on prior to the restart.  So someplace, 
there is that info.  Also, the tde version of kcalc does this, the kde 
version does not restart.

Yeah, I know, beggars and horses...

Thanks Nik.
