Add the "ME TOO" to this question. I have noticed that when my wife logs out
and I log in something was taking up all the processor. doing a ps -ef would
show that a process with her userid was using all that was available. I have
to su, then kill -9 the process. just a kill or kill nohup would not stop
it. I am running KDE 3.0.4 on SuSE 8.0 from the update directories on the
ftp mirror.

Is there a setting that would fix this anybody?
