Kill nautilus.

Thanks Carlos.

Nautilus might be the culprit.
When I login to my KDE3 session several gnome programs are started:
nautilus, gconfd-2, polkit-gnome-au, gnome-do, gnome-do (copied from
the result of ps -u myusername).

How can I prevent them from starting in my KDE3 session?
Why are they started at all, and what is the way to configure them?

Nautilus is not a "normal" file browser, it also does special tasks inside gnome, like drawing the icons in the desktop. You should never run it outside gnome, because it has unexpected side effects.

I think killing it should be enough, I don't remember what mechanism it uses to start again in a new session, if it does, in kde. Kde has an autostart folder, I think, so look in there. KDE users may know how to tell kde not to start it again.

It is not the first time I have seen this problem, but I don't remember how to finally stop it from reocurring.

The rest of the programs you see running will disappear when you stop nautilus, they are auxiliaries.
