A similar script works for me with XClock on KDE-3 when I start it from
an icon on the desktop.

So, I really don't know.  I do note that KStart also has the "geometry"
option.  It might be getting confused.

Have you tried:

/opt/kde3/bin/kstart --ontop --alldesktops --window gkrellm \
"/usr/X11R6/bin/gkrellm -geometry -0+0"


/opt/kde3/bin/kstart --ontop --alldesktops --window gkrellm --geometry \
-0+0  /usr/X11R6/bin/gkrellm
