Well, it appears that when you write a question like this you will find your
answer faster. Like pushing the elevator button repeatedly, :-).

Actually I found in the KDE users ( and I think one other in this list) list
some loosely related problems with konqueror, and kicker. The problem (I
think, after putting the pieces together) is that if you (using SuSE
especially) update KDE the old files in /tmp don't appreciate it and don't go
away. After I went in and deleted ALL the files from /tmp I was able to
login, logout, and see the process go away properly.

Now, is it completely resolved? Maybe. But, either way I do have a work
around until one is found. BTW: the buzilla number and link is:

According the the bug number above, most, if not all, are using SuSE 8.0 or
above. One person even mentioned that the problem shows up over time, which
makes me wonder if I have "fixed" it, or delayed it.
