Well, I spoke too soon!

I rebooted, and no Note Icon appeared in the Panel or Notification
Area. However, "ps" shows the Notes plugin. I killed the Notes plugin
pid. I the went to Applications/Accessories/Notes and launched
it. Nothing in the Panel. Yet "ps" again shows an active Notes
pid. Totally confused!
