How do I change what apps load upon login to OpenSuse using Gnome?

I am running OpenSuse 10.2 with Gnome. Every time I log in, Evolution starts up. While this is not really a problem, I would like to know why it is doing that. When I right click in the "computer" menu, the option says "add to startup programs" so I am assuming it is not currently in the startup. I opened the sessions manager and looked for reference to it there, but it was not listed. Is there a conf file somewhere that this could be hiding in?
Did I mention I was new to Linux?

First a couple of things: make certain that Evolution is not configured via prefs to statup on login (if such a thing even exists) and that it is not listed in the session manager's startup tab. Once that is verifed then see below:

Close Evolution and be sure to save your session when logging out -- that's critical. Then log back in.
