The issue is caused by LXDE. You might use a version of LXDE where
~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart isn't used anymore, but
mentions issues with desktop files.

I'm a dino and try to explain that the issue is neither related to
Claws, nor to openbox.
Openbox does use $HOME/.config/openbox/autostart to autostart apps.
Upstream of apps can't care about all desktop environments. The spirit
of a desktop environment is the user-friendliness you want to get. It's
the task of your desktop environment to fit to your needs, so your
request belongs to the desktop environment.
