My configuration is to *not* automatically save session on logout.  
I did the "killall -9 xftaskbar4," log out and log back in, and the
taskbar still loads. ?!?!?!

If I was a little smarter, I might know the correct command to use
grep to search through the files in certain directories for the
"xftaskbar4" string.  :-(
