I'm starting tint2 with "tint2 &" in my autostart.sh also. I've been using 
tint2 for a while and the config for it doesn't give it a border. Switching to 
<keepBorder>yes</keepBorder> gives it the same border as all other windows 
which makes me suspect it's openbox doing it. Plus, I've just tried editing my 
tint2rc file to give it a border, killed tint2 and re-launched it and it's got 
a stupid white border along with openbox's grey one. Also, reconfiguring 
OPENBOX removes the erroneous border.
