Because possibly the session manager is remembering it running?
I just did a killall -9 xftaskbar4, then logged out and then back in
again - gone. (A workaround...)

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme
Being as his Father, in the womb of a virgin will be classified with the
fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may
hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United
States will do away with this artificial scaffolding and restore to us
the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated Reformer of
human errors. - Thomas Jefferson
