If you only run one startd per machine you could tell the startd to run
as a specific domain account and then set up your windows machine to
auto-login as that domain account at boot time.

See: http://softgears.com/AutoLogin.html -- for a tool and the registry
keys it modifies to do auto-login of a domain account.
