Where do I configure syndaemon default parameters?
By default it is called with
-i 2.0 -K -R -t
I have a script that re-runs it with parameters that I need, but how do I do this properly?
I am on ubuntu 12.04

As Rinzwind already pointed out, these settings are hardcoded in unity-settings-daemon:
As a workaround, rename syndaemon to syndaemon.orig
mv /usr/bin/syndaemon /usr/bin/syndaemon.orig
and create a script syndaemon that just calls the original binary with the correct parameters:
cat << EOF > /usr/bin/syndaemon #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/syndaemon.orig -K -R -i0.5 EOF
Make it executable with
chmod +x /usr/bin/syndaemon
For those using Xubuntu:
I've found that making it half a second delay works well for me. The command you need to run at auto start is
syndaemon -i .5 -K -t -R -d
