Docky not autostarting, or not closing maybe?

I am running Fedora 13 KDE.

I have installed Docky (from source as there is no rpm in the Fed repos) but I have a problem with it autostarting at bootup.

I have a simple script in Autostart which should work, but the problem is that the "old" version of docky from my last session does not close when I shut down, nor does it work when I boot up again. So the autostart script won't start a new instance as there is already an instance running, and therefore I end up with a running instance of docky that doesn't work, which I need to kill before I can start a new one.

Hoped that made sense. Anyone got any idea how i can automatically kill the old instance of docky when I shutdown so (hopefully) the new instance will be autostarted correctly?

Thanks in advance

EDIT - this seems to have fixed itself for some reason, docky now shuts down normally along with everything else at the end of the session. No idea why, but hey ho, as long as it works.
