Hi C.S. & All,

	Yes, I did look at that current session check box and made sure it was
not selected. That is why I find it so weird. The loading of Konqurer as
an empty window is what makes me think somethong is actually wrong, like
something is "stuck".
	In addition the terminal window text looks faint and washed out(only in
this "desktop", not on any of the others). Also when using Sylpheed in
this "auto loading" window the whole of X seems to have a much higher
tendency to freeze up.  In general if my Mac's did this (and they do
sometimes do similiar stuff) I would do a rebuild of the desktop DB or a
zap of the pram.
	 I don't know the Linux commands for this kind of thing. Also if it
were a Mac I would check for fragmentation of the fs by running Norton.
Again don't know Linux commands or if it is necessary using reiser
w/mdrk 8.2.
