You can load the compiz fusion icon in your session startup before 
anything else.

For me, compiz starts just after gnome-terminal, and gets all my windows 
in the right places, including firefox, about 75% of the time.  When it 
does not work just right are times when application pop ups get obscured.

I am also interested in getting it to be a bit more accurate ...

Good luck, and I will be looking for answers as well.
