[LAU] RME Multiface II question

I think I've tried everything to make hdspmixer start minimized or in a
tray, in another workspace, you now, anywhere.
I've tried tools like devilspie, alltray, compiz and more that I don't
recall. It still sits there, right in my face everytime I boot up. But it's
ok, because it does cool stuff. But every other program I tested with
reacted to stuff like devilspie and compiz, but hey, hdspmixer won't listen.
I guess I just have to get used to it.

But my RME HDSP works great. However it does not work with pulseaudio (i can
make it load through some hacking, but the sound is terrible - stuttering).
Still I recommend RME, if you don't depend on pulseaudio for something.
