Gabiral, quite simply /tmp/orbit-$USER/bonobo-activation-server-ior is
created when bonobo-activation-server is started, which is a daemon that
is automatically launched the first time a bonobo-activation API is
called by any bonobo client.  It really could be just about any program,
but most likely the first bonobo client to use bonobo is probably
gnome-session; if not, gnome-panel or nautilus are other likely
