I use firestarter too, but never really ran into this issue.  KDE tries 
to load it right after I log in, but since the GUI requires a root 
password to launch (at least I think it does), KDE can't just launch it 
and instead it pops up an "enter root password" dialog.  I just leave 
that dialog sitting there till after I connect, then I come back and 
enter the password and start firestarter.  Since at that point it's 
connected, no error message then.

This approach workable for you?
