Yeah, I noticed that too, and was able to kill old ones.  But this is
different.  After exiting X, I did ps auwx and kill -9 until old suck
programs died.  Then I removed .gnome* and .enlightement/u* and restarted.
And gnome-session, gnome-name-service, and gmc are still there, each at a
load point.  When I start any other GNOME app (gnomecc, gnome-help-browser,
cal, etc.- all that I've tried), there's another load point; quit it and
the load point goes away.

I don't think this is not the same problem as you are describing.  But
