For anyone who might be interested, I found a solution to my problem.
I added this line to ~/.profile:
(sleep 5; xgamma -gamma .7) &
Whatever it is that is resetting the gamma is getting executed after
~/.profile is run, so this is why the sleep command is used. Works on
my machine, and now I don't have to reset gamma every time I log in.
