	Two or three years ago.

	Didn't see it there but I found something elsewhere in one of the "system" 
menus. It was "start with a blank session". This did the trick. Still a lot 
of stuff running but not as much as before. I went back in and remembered I 
did want a terminal to open when I login. I opened the terminal in a window 
and went back to the place I mentioned earlier and selected restore manually 
saved session. Then I clicked the save from the main menu.

	Just for good measure I went into Gnome and changed the default applications 
to the ones I use in KDE. They previously matched the ones which were 
starting up automatically. Strange...

	If the problems come back, I'll post here.

	BTW, that "Nuns with guns" series you mentioned last time is called "Chrno 
Crusade". I haven't seen it myself but it is apparently pretty good. You may 
also want to check out a classic series (60's - 70's) called "Dirty pair" (so 
called because they usually end up shooting anyone assigned to work with them 
in the back, or blowing up planets - you get the idea).
