Multiple Instances of nm-applet

   I've replaced the linux distribution on our ThinkPad 600E with
Xubuntu-7.04. Each time it boots, multiple instances of the network manager
(nm-applet) are loaded; we're up to well more than 20 now. They're like a
cancer, growing uncontrollably and I can't cure the machine of this

   Before quitting, I run 'killall nm-applet' and they all close down. The
session-saving option is selected, but this applet keeps coming back on a
reboot or cold boot.

   I even deleted the session data in ~/.config/cache/, but to no avail.

   If anyone here can help me clear this up, I'd really appreciate it.
