unknow app running at startup

Hi Guys, im in a bit of a muddle again…

I have just upgraded my suse 9.1 box using the excellent apt-get and synaptic combo. However now when I start my computer there is an application bar in the kicker tray of my computer that looks like a console (red x) is running, no other info is listed with it and it wont close. Could anyone tell me how I can find out what it is that is running every time I start my pc?

Try the

ps -axf

pstree -a
commands. First one will show detailed information and the second one will show the command line parameters. May be you could figure out the program. Also if you find the program name, you can find other files (if there any) related with it on your disc with the locate utility.
