You are basically out of luck, unless there is something in the depths
of .gtk<mumble> or .gconf<mumble> that handles this.

GNome / GTK applications don't look at the X11 database and don't take
any of the traditional X11 application command like arguments (even when
they are listed in the man pages for said applications!).
