You can't access the GUI if the service isn't running. (I never thought of
re-enabling the service temporarily... Doh!) On startup you get an error, and
acknowledging it (click OK) causes the updater to quit, but still reappear
next login. No opportunity to change any config or anything.

However, by digging I found the solution (as root):

# cd /etc/xdg
# cp -ar autostart autostart.disabled
# rm autostart/zen-updater-auto.desktop

Now when you login the updater won't start. The xdg folder is part of the
fledgling cross desktop compatability standard.
