After some investigation,
I figure out there is another problem of saving GNUstep applictaion in session.
I may be wrong, but based on my observation,
gnome-session save GNUstep application as unix command,
ex. GNUstep/Local/Applications/AnApp.app/AnApp.
Next time, it tries to start the application based on this command and
will fail.
By changing the saved command into 'openapp AnApp.app' will solve the problem.
I guess GNUstep application just don't support Xwindow session yet.
