Almost certainly nautilus is running, probably resumed by session management.
Check ksysguard or ps aux's output, and see if it is listed in
~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc. If it is, open kcontrol->KDE
Components->Session Manager, check "Start with an empty session", logout,
login, change to "Restore previous session" and your current session, without

Or remove the whole [Session: saved at previous logout] group from

I think there is a setting to tell nautilus to only do file management, but
I'm not sure what it is, perhaps understandably.
