On my MacBook running OS X Lion 10.7.4, after a few days the startup items automatically get removed. I find this really annoying, as then I have to add them all back again.

What are the possible causes of this?

WHere did you put the Startup Items? – Mark Aug 31 '12 at 13:30
@Mark just in the login items panel in system preferences. – think123 Aug 31 '12 at 22:29
